Major Impairments

If, chas v’shalom, a person’s speech or hearing became damaged, it would cause him more anguish than the loss of any organ, since these two faculties are so crucial.  All the more so would a person suffer great anguish in the Wold to Come if his powers of speech or hearing were impaired there as a result of his sins.  How much humiliation would he suffer!  All would know the reason for his disabilities – that he spoke words of lashon hara and controversy during his time in this world. ~ Shemiras Halashon – The Chofetz Chaim
