My husband is a Star Trek fanatic. Not necessarily all things Star Trek, but most things. When we first met, I can remember hanging out together and watching episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Now, our young ones are enthralled by Captain Janeway and the crew of Voyager. (Thank goodness for Netflix...that'll be another topic for another day!)
When I saw this quote below included in a great article about the sin of gossip on Crosswalk.com, I couldn't help make the leap from Star Trek to our current lives. I hope that my lengthy preamble here doesn't deter from the significance of these words, but instead...maybe enhances them for you, too?
No matter what...
Live long and prosper.
Gossip is a parasite that requires a host organism to survive.
Wouldn't it be great if we could eradicate gossip from our world?
