It has been said that there are no coincidences, and it's something I find to be true in my life. So, here's another "coincidence."
I am looking at books on Amazon, and find the Chofetz Chaim book. I have never heard of this man, and I am not totally certain what this book is about, but I feel like I ought to order it, and I do. I mention ordering it in this forum, and lo, Jeff is studying it with his family.
It arrived today and I read the introduction. I am totally blown away by how much I need to read and apply this book. I am totally blown away by the concept of Shmiras LaHoshon. I had only heard of lashon hara before. The positive flip side is so powerful! THIS is what we need to use as the guide for how to act in this forum!
