have we lost the art of connection? a post about respect and understanding for women everywhere

I came across this post and thought it important to share.  While I have made many new friends through twitter and blog networking groups, I have seen a monsoon of negativity thrust onto others.

This morning I was reading the news about the Tweeting mom that lost her son
Monday in a pool drowning. I have been especially struck by the responses
of many other mothers’ throughout the country (perhaps the world) and find
myself needing to communicate with other, local moms about this.

It saddens me tremendously that there are so many harsh words written to and about this woman. I cannot imagine the pain she and her family must befeeling because of the death of her son, exacerbated by the judgment of so many other women. It saddens me that when another mother does something we
ourselves might not do or say we (generally speaking) are quick to judgment.
