Have you ever been at a loss for words?

I am rarely, but once on one of my blogs I was subjected to a viscous racial attack from a peron who claimed to be of African American descent, just after I has accepted her offer for friendship. All her freinds left crude rude and rcists comments on my blog. I am an Indian and did not expect it at all. I did not know what to reply or do. Ultimately that tuned out to be a boon in disguise, because other visitors to my blog ralled to my unsolicited support and then the attacks ceased a few days later becasue of my inaction. So have you ever been at a loss for words?

Yes I am always at loss of words when suddenly I am invited to say few words in front of crowd, Today also this happened when our Director called everyone to speak something on Republic day.

In this case, I think the lack of words was a good thing. When you ignore ignorance like that, it will eventually go away. Others will feel bad for you and attack the poster for you. You did fine.

Often when life has me at its highest and at its lowest I find I have no words to express all that life bestows upon me.

Silence is golden, in your case. Funny becaue I apply this thing when it comes to my in laws and it always works. RRight now I am targt of terrible comment from a newly wed in my gfamily as I and my inlaws were not in favor of this marriage. I was against running away and getting married. I wanted couple to stick out and make arents agree to their marriage. Now the newly wed lady is after my reputation in the family. She has been going to all my relative places and talking ill of me, people call me up and tell me. I say if you do not know me after fourteen years of association, I don't have to say anything.If you didn't like what she said you can give her a shut up call for that but don't ring me up and tell me. I am waiting to see how far she can go. As I do not meet them face to face so I do not even wish to clarify anything too. I think silence is best regarding this issue, what do you think?

Yeah, I do once in awhile, it is just a part of being overwhelmed or something like that.
