100 Words: Behind the Keyboard

I am continually astounded by the freedom some people seem to feel while hiding behind the safe anonymity of an internet screen name... the freedom to be rude, unkind, even downright cruel to their fellow human beings. I have a difficult time understanding what on earth possesses them to treat others with such disrespect, as if they had forgotten that they were speaking to an actual person, and not just a collection of typed words on a screen.

Then again, perhaps these people are like this in their everyday lives when meeting others face to face?

A frightening prospect indeed...
