Sometimes I just don't think

Earlier I posted a link to a video on YouTube. I took that post down after some input from my husband.

I often speak and do things before thinking. And that can land me in hot water. He told me that he didn't find the video funny and that it was "distasteful". I don't know if he knew I posted it here, I had emailed the link to him. I value his opinion and he usually has a more level head on his shoulders than I, so I took the video down.

I apologize if I offended or upset anyone by posting that. Hopefully I'll grow up one day.

I'm so glad you are normal! I do the same thing way too often. Now I'll tell you something embarrassing - I have been reading so many blogs this morning, and watched a few videos, so I can't even remember whether I saw it or not. Maybe I need to stop reading blogs in a complete fog.

I am glad I have my husband to bounce things off and my friends. I will often ask if something crosses the line, and they always tell it like it is.

Grah, knowing that my comments caused you to edit your blog makes me wish I'd kept them to myself.

You found it funny (it's a scene of Hitler ranting at his officers with English sub-titles about the BYU/UofU football game) and I found it objectionable. Does that make me right and you wrong or does it merely mean that we've had different experiences which color our views?

I find any humor involving Hitler or the Nazi regime objectionable. Any man that can cause such evil that even nature is silenced by it is no laughing matter in my book.

I will forever be haunted by the scenes of death I saw at age 11 when we learned about the Holocaust in school. Do kids even learn about that anymore?

I will never forget the shame and humiliation carried by the old timers I met in Germany.

Only 2,974 people died during the 11 September 2001 attacks and that number includes the 19 hijackers. 9/11 humor is still frowned upon by the general public. At least 5,9333,900 in concentration camps as a result of Hitler's orders with another 42 - 43 million dying on all sides. No, I find very little humor there at all.

At least 5,9333,900 dying in case that isn't clear above.

SOmetimes it takes a bigger heart to pull something in respect to others than to stick to it and say it doesn't matter. The fact that you did pull it off shows you are sensitive and didn't mean to be offensive. I have said so many stupid things and reacted in dumb ways in my lifetime....we have all been there, and it's okay.
Just the fact that we are discussing it now is still agreat reminder to us all. We took our kids to the Holocust Memorial in D.C. and my kids were so shocked by it. It is an important thing to not forget, and I know you didn't mean that post in any way other than a joke on the heat of the game rivalry, which as we know, is just insane around here!

Keep smiling and keep posting! You are awesome. *hug*

I must have missed it. I wouldn't have judged you anyway because you didn't judge me for watching The Singles 2nd Ward. :p

Bah, you said I think things through so thoroughly and yet, rereading my comment above, I left out the conclusion.

There are times I wish I could laugh more easily, times I wish wouldn't dive head first into the heavy/somber/melancholy aspect of this, that or the other.

Do I need to lighten up? Maybe, probably even, I'm just not entirely sure how to balance such diametrically opposed ideas.
