Look in the Mirror before Speaking
I will and can never understand some people frame of mind. I can understand not all of us think before we speak. It is easier to communicate behind the screen with the delete, backspace, copy, and paste. But in life their are no buttons or command to undo what one do/say.
That said yesterday a comment was made about a girl from China in my class. We were playing a quiz and she answer a technology question wrong. The guy in my class ask her, “How could you get that wrong. Your Chinese! Your from China! China is leader of technology and etc..etc..” I was like lay off man but ofcourse said it to myself as the whole class laugh over something utterly not funny. The young lady just smile and chuckle at it. I don’t know if she was embarrassed or not. Today same Predator and same Prey. We had to choose a person who we wanted to ask a grammatical question to. He choose the young lady. But instead of staying her name. He said, “Mrs. ChingChang”. The whole class laugh again. My mouth drop open like no he did not! The teacher laugh it off and said, “her name is Amy.” I just wanted to stand up and yell at everyone and tell them stop laughing this is not funny it is mean. How would you like to be call out of your name, mock, poke at because of how you look or where you come from. I was so tempting to say all this. Instead I told myself Lora stop! You are always fighting someone battle. The person need to stand up for themselves. I felt bad for her, but I did told myself one more of this outburst I am going to let him have it. My Deutsch might be butcher but I am damn sure going to make sure what I say is clear and understood.
