I found an old yellowed Ann Landers newspaper clipping on my bedroom floor, it had fallen out of a keepsake box. I hope you will be challenged or comforted by this old Ann Landers column on gossip. Even the Bible equates gossip with murder because it ruins a reputation and plants doubts or preconceived notions in others' minds many times about an innocent person. Whether you are the person gossiped about or the bystander hearing a loved one being gossiped about the pain can be irreversible.
