Have you noticed how that little word, “hate” is so easily cast about nowadays. I hate this, or I hate that, or I hate him or her and so it goes, a bit like opening the tap full on to fill a glass of water unaware of the power that can knock the glass right out of your hand.
Wasn’t there a time when the sheer efficacy of the word was respected? You thought twice, no, ten times, before you uttered it. I think there was. The tragedy for me is, if we’ve done this with the word Hate, what have we done with the word, Love?
No doubt, when words like “love” and “hate” are tossed about like confetti, superficiality stands back and smiles.
