|A Lesson From The Technological Revolution|
revolution started back in the days of the Chofetz Chaim when telegrams
were the common way of quickly communicating important messages.
However it was not cheap and you paid per word. I remember the days
when they were still used. Each word was written only after a lengthy
Din V'Cheshbon to determine if it was really necessary or it could be
shortened. The few times that my parents received a telegram the
messages came out so cryptic that you needed to be genius to decipher
This says the Chofetz Chaim (Chovas HaShmira - Asara Devarim) is wonderful lesson in Shmiras HaLashon. One day we will also give a Din V'Cheshbon on each word... and the price will be far more than the most expensive telegram.
