Be Kind

Following what happened over the weekend, I wanted to briefly write a little bit.

Just before 6pm on Saturday evening, news emerged that Caroline Flack had died.

Absolutely heartbreaking.

Majority of us spend a fair time on Social Media, including me, it's part of my job.

I've seen lots of posts paying tribute and In particular, lots were re-posting what appeared on Caroline's Instagram on the 5th December 2019,

"In a world where you can be anything, be kind."

I can't speak for any of my fellow presenters/colleagues, but over the years I've had some horrible, nasty and unwarranted messages sent to me just for doing my job. I can't understand why anyone thinks it's acceptable to say something to someone using social media, that they wouldn't say to their face.

We're all human. We all have feelings.

Think, before you take to social media to make a hurtful comment on someones appearance or actions. One comment can make, but can sometimes break someones day.

"If you can't be kind, be quiet"
