  1. Many of us were likely raised to combat namecalling with the catch phrase: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Sadly, words can hurt, especially when used in a hateful, hurtful manner.

    1. I remember that phrase so well and, as you say it’s a phrase that is so untrue. It is the words that hurt you, and those words stay with you for a very, very long time. Once they’ve been heard, they cannot be unheard. We need to be so careful about what we say, and how we say it.

I'd love to hear from you. It's nice to know other people are out there.
