Had a very eye-opening experience with the power of social media today. Checked in here and discovered that one of my older posts had been shared on Facebook. Lo and behold, it had over 360 hits in the last three days! I have never expected these posts to have any effect, but now that one of them has, it is humbling. A couple of excellent comments have been shared regarding the post, and maybe, just maybe, some discussion will occur thanks to people reading it. That makes me happy, because it was a topic very important to me.
The Irish Bird Assassin had illuminated me during her visit that our musings here in the ether can have effects we do not even realize. I hope this one has had a positive effect. And many thanks to the person or people who shared it. May it spur on some constructive discussions.
