Everyone should be entitled to freely share their opinions. That applies to all forms of communication. One element of the blogging world that I’ve really come to appreciate is that people are allowed to openly share their opinions. In return, they welcome and often get into friendly debates, with the understanding that not everyone is going to agree.
Most of my posts are fairly generic, however there have been a few that have garnered a bit of opinionated attention. (such as This World – Shame) Some have agreed and others have not, both of which are perfectly fine. But, there is one thing both of those groups have in common. They are both able to share and debate without becoming offended. I admire that.
Learning the ideas of others and gaining their insight on various topics is crucial to both self improvement and improving the world as a whole. In order to grow, we have to step outside of ourselves and see the world through the eyes of others. How else will we ever learn that which is beyond our own understanding?
So for all those who share their opinions, post comments and join in friendly debates, I thank you. I thank you for having respect for others even when you disagree and for allowing them to enjoy their freedom of speech, just as you enjoy yours. After all, it is the 1st Amendment.
As for this blog, I respect and value each opinion, regardless if we agree or not. All opinions are welcome here.
