Gossip (It Was A Speech)

698 words - 3 pages

I'm not sure if I put it into the right subject, and I hope it helps a little with whatever you may need to do...Gossip is a nasty and unnecessary thing that was probably started by the first people on earth. Although the term 'gossip' is not in the bible, the concept is. It is something most people do almost every day of their lives. Gossiping can leave people feeling hurt and can break people down mentally. It may also destroy friendships, marriages, business and lead to murder or suiciding.The Cambridge Dictionary defines gossip as "conversation or reports about other people's private lives which might be unkind, disapproving or not true".

People with high self esteem tend not to gossip much.Gossiping is usually something that is done without the intention of good will. This means that you could feel jealousy, hatred, the want to feel more superior to another or the desire to belong while gossiping. It is hardly ever from respect, care, understanding, etc. Don Miguel Ruiz once said, "Using the analogy of the human mind as a computer, gossip can be compared to a computer virus. A computer virus is a piece of computer language written in the same language all the other codes are written in, but with a harmful intent."However, not gossiping is a hard thing to do. It takes bravery and...

581 words - 2 pages hopefully reflect on all the misery and pain that he hadinflicted on others. I can't see death as an answer. Death can make a person a martyr, or perhaps simply forgotten, but if it will help progress the Iraqi nation to a stable society then maybe it could be a symbol of a new order that puts the past behind it and looks forward to a better future. For this reason, perhaps it is the most appropriate conviction.What I find interesting is that Saddam Hussein is going to be tried by his countrymen when his counterpart Slobodan Milosevic was not tried by the people he treated so badly. Can we say that this will be a fair trial? Who knows? Only time and history will tell.
