The Power of Speech

A extremely large group of college students had a snowball fight the other night. A police car drove by and some of the students pelted his car with snowballs. The policeman stopped and informed the crowd that he didn't care if they had a snowball fight but he did not want them to throw at buildings or at cars.

The snowball fight continued but fizzled out a short time later.

It is amazing what a few well chosen words can accomplish.

I totally agree with that. So many people nowadays think they shouldn't get involved when they see something someone is doing that is wrong. I totally disagree with that. Even the little things, like the event you just mentioned...should not be overlooked. Overlooking them, only makes it look like you are condoning them. I don't "mind my business" when it comes to my neighborhood youth, and I'm happy to see the police get involved in even apparent little things!
Have a great weekend.
