What single hateful moment leaves an impression -- that tweet, this post, his pic, her laugh -- fleeting actions that seem harmless create ripples of pain for the subject. Ongoing torment scars, breaks, and damages lives. It's happened to us all at some point in time -- the ghost of a playground bully crosses your mind, an insult slips out at work, or someone gets a laugh at your expense in class. Some of us bounce back from the hurt. Some of us never heal. What word will your actions spark in others? We hope it's love.
