What's in a word????
I have been reading comments on The Dancing on Ice Facebook page about one of the contestants. And the use of the word hate crops up over and over again.
My question is.
How can you hate someone that you have never met let alone spoken to?
These people are saying they hate this contestant, only because of the things they have read in the media. I say you should not judge a book by its cover and certainly not because of what is read or heard in the media. It maybe that this person has done things in her life that we may not agree with, but everyone deserves a second chance. It is not for us to judge her on what she has done previously.
The definition of Hate is:
1. to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward; detest: to hate the enemy; to hate bigotry.
I feel that some are using the word to liberally. Without really knowing this person or there life.
Just my point of view.
