Thanks Carrie for the link to the video. Ms. Livingston is one special woman. Her message to the viewer that sent the email was right on target and her message to the young people in her viewing area was inspirational. Read and noted.

thanks for the video! I'm glad she responded to the letter, rather than keeping silent like so many others would.

Excellent! Good for her. Standing ovation. Good for her for taking the High Road. And Carrie, thank you for finding this and putting it on.

Too many people throw out hurtful words without thinking or perhaps they do think and don't care. How many have been driven to despair, tears, or even suicide due to people's ill thought out speech.

With freedom of speech comes a responsibility of what we say, check your heart first, if you have nothing good to say about someone, then it would be wise to say nothing.

Good for her! I saw the PUTZ who wrote the email sniveling on tv this morning, trying to make himself look better.

He failed.
