Too often we speak with little-to-no regard of how our words may be received. “Sticks and Stones” have got nothing on words and the damage they do. And, although any word can be removed from any language,  its removal does not change or take away what the word once stood for. Whatever “it” is still remains. It exists and we simply call it something else.

Here’s a good rule of thumb to remember…
