The Difference Between Choices and Mistakes

If I pick up a rock and then accidently drop it dangerously close to a friend’s foot, that is a mistake. If I pick up a rock and throw it at my friend’s foot, that is a choice, albeit a very bad choice.

Moral of this post? Don’t call choices mistakes. We will all be better off remembering the difference, and we will also be better able to teach our children right from wrong.
