I saw an incredible video the other day that made a point that many others have tried to make throughout the centuries. … maybe not as successfully.
The man’s voice in the background said, “Throw this wine glass on the floor”. and the wine glass is shown being thrown to the floor and shattering to pieces.
The man says, “Now say you’re sorry. Is the glass whole again? No.”
The man was making the point that our words and actions have real consequences and that sometimes those consequences can’t be apologized away.
