This is a good read whatever your opinions are of various current events . . .
The moral challenge for each of us is this: What do we do in the moment when we see something on social media that reinforces everything we want to be true? Do we type up something snarky and spread the story? Or do we be our own lie detectors and make sure the entire story has been fleshed out?
It is easy to spread first and ask questions later; social media is plainly designed for us to execute that impulse.
What we do in the moment matters. It makes a difference what we do not only to us, but to our family, co-workers, community, city, state, and country.
In a world where lives can be saved or destroyed in a moment, we must be the culture we want and need, where we embrace our better angels.
