People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. Maya Angelou

And, with that glaring illustration of the point, I rest my case...
So a few weeks back I tweeted about how examples matter: 'Super racist' pool safety poster prompts Red Cross apology
I'm always amazed that, this far past the Age of Enlightenment, some folks still consider ignorance as an option.
Reminds me of the time neighbors scoffed when I told 'em to get insurance for these: Watch: Bounce house flies away…

Dems should strongly consider Rpub option of judicial determination before blocking exercise of a Constitutional right. Sets fair precedent.
So, clearly this attack was intended to stop that celebration. Rest assured, those who hate, you just made Orlando love more. #LoveisLove
Orlando is a very open city. It's one of the things that I think defines it. This time of year is when LGBT community celebrates here.
I've been asked for any information I might have b/c I'm in the area, but I don't want to add to the chatter. Everyone in shock here.
Thank you! BTW, they are saying many blood banks are out of supplies. They will need blood in coming days.…
Orlando - Type O blood is needed for victims. Check local media for locations to donate. Hospitals are not location to donate right now.

Other options to locate an address for delivery dudes - County property appraiser website link to aerial maps or, you could just call owner.
Continuously amused by the fact that Google Maps and most GPS systems send folks trying to deliver things to me to random places nearby.
I've been to events at The Plaza. It's a small venue where performances can be more intimate and personal. Such a terrible loss.

You go, girl! Hillary Clinton Claims the Democratic Nomination
I've seen inexperienced inquisitors think they had a case locked down only to find upon review of the transcript that they missed the boat.
For example, "Did you buy that outfit before your interview?" & "Did you select that outfit for your interview?" are not the same question.
Thought for today: When questioning witnesses, word choice can make or break the outcome. You might think you have an answer, but don't.

Given how much time had passed, it was remarkable that she remembered. However, that illustrates the lasting impact of an Imposed Reality.
Then, when they realized just how false their assessments had been, they were pretty embarrassed. Years later, one of them apologized.
I suppose in my high school example, the snarky girls felt a little better about themselves by denouncing my accomplishment, for awhile...
One of the quickest ways to assess motive is to consider "who gains something by the dissemination of the negative information?"
Another analytical tool I've often used as an attorney is the assessment of motive. In both civil and criminal law, motive carries weight.
One way to avoid perpetuating Imposed Realities is to verify information, particularly the negative, as it is more likely to be inaccurate.
One reason that "Imposed Realities" can be harmful is that often they are fueled by covert sharing among those eager to believe.
In this early experience with "Imposed Realities" it was obvious the truth would easily come to light. But, in many situations, it does not.
However, if the intent is something other than to convey factual information, why bother, right? Just create a reality you'd like to impose.
If you're going to disseminate information, seems a responsible person would ensure it was accurate by going to a reliable source.
When faced with my snarking classmates, there were a few options. I could have tried to convince them of the truth, but was that my job?
2) Why do women consistently & maliciously tear other women down for their accomplishments? Men seem far less vicious in that regard.
Think about that - when was the last time you heard someone repeat accolades that are inaccurate or unfounded?
Obviously, this scenario brings many issues into play. (1) Why do folks prefer to repeat & recall false information only if it is negative?
Thereafter, they influenced others by repeating their misunderstanding...until I graduated a year ahead of them. Hard to deny that fact.
Rather than accept that another female classmate had accomplished something, two of the girls chose to mock and belittle the achievement.
When asked during the presentation, I answered but intentionally downplayed the information b/c I realized it was uncommon & set me apart.
The point they took issue with was my response to an inquiry regarding grade level. I had skipped a grade but did not advertise the fact.
One example I use for illustration is from high school, where after making a presentation I overheard two girls snarking about the content.
Today's topic: Imposed Reality. Meaning? In this context, it's what follows incorrect information given measure by malicious repetition.
