Gentle reminder: Peace and Good Relations.
You know the old saying "stick and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me," well, words can hurt. Words can betray. Words can destroy. Words can kill. Especially if these words are not choosing carefully. "Chew your words before spitting them out," I learned this from a story book for kids (of all books :D) It is very true, far too often people speak in the heat of emotion and say things that have the opposite effect than they attended. Today, more than ever, do we need more tolerance, more patience, more wisdom in choice of words, more peace, more calm, more compassion, more mercy and more of the "love thy neighbor" spirit.
