This is a paper that brings to reality the leathality of not thinking before you speak.
Thinking or to give thought into what you say before you say it.  I think its safe to say that we all are guilty of not doing that. Not thinking before you speak can be dangerous and can prove to be very hurtful to yourself and to others.  Quite often I say things in hast or and/or in ignorance. Of which I alway's regret later.  I'm sure that there has been a time or two that you have done the same.  After you say something hurtful to someone, you can't go back and change it.  Once you say it that's it.  There's no taking it back.  That's why I like to write.  I can take as much time as I need to write something.  I can go back and rewirte an entire sentence if I need to.  I can do as much editing, as I want. But once you say something you can't go back and reword it.  You can't edit or mark it out with a pin.  The Bible says that the tongue is  untamable by man.  James 3:1.  The tongue can and has murdered many people.  It has slandered and hurt people's reputations.  Not only has it but it continues to and will until the end of time.  The tongue is a deadly poison and is full of evil.  However, I do think that you can tame your tongue down a little by simply thinking before you speak.  You still might say things at times that you may regret later but not near as much or not as often as you did before.  We can become better at saying things by giving some thought into what we do say.  I encourage you to think before you speak. The world will be a better place if you and I do.
