Use Words Well

It is essential that we are very careful with the way we use words.

The way we use words in speaking and writing as we present, discuss, debate, and promote ideas, opinions, and information matters.

While some are shy to use words, others readily use words. If you don't use words a lot, you may not have good experience with words, and that lack of experience can lead to awkward error, and if you readily use words, you have to be careful that you don't use your words in ways that are callous or cavalier--you must use your words with respect, empathy, compassion, care, and truth.

Words are amazingly powerful and can be positively transformative for individuals' lives as well as the way our world works. We have to take the power that words hold seriously.
