Should someone have severe or hostile differences of opinion with another person it’s my hope that the involved parties would settle their disputes in private.

CLEANUP IN AISLE FIVE
Through hours of research I’d found the perfect subject for my weekly flash fiction—a family’s battle over wealth with a tragic end.
I posted it to good reviews. But months later, a venomous barrage of remarks sent shockwaves through my world.
“I hate your writing, you ignorant slut. It’s all lies. My father was murdered.”
“I’d take down the post,” said a friend. “But don’t let her anger rent space in your head.”
I learned that day about the power of friendship. I also learned when fictionalizing recent events, it’s best to change real names to protect the guilty.
