The Words You Speak

A Thought

Just a thought…Before we begin to dialogue, let our first words be flavored in respect for each other’s uniqueness…

This is not my Original Language…

So forgive me if I sometimes utter a diction that makes you cringed at my broken English, at my Southern accent, West Indian tongue, or the African voices still living in my soul…

If the road of friendship is what you seek, choose carefully the words you speak if we should meet…

One wrong word, or facial expressions of distrust and disgust, can ignite emotions…

Just a thought… Every Color, Every Race, has a Place on the Earth, let’s reverse the curse…

Give peace a chance, give differences a chance, the world was made for everyone under the Sun…

Words have tremendous power my friend, no matter where and what diction is being used...It is a powerful tool that can elevate or devastate... Have a Great day, thank you for your comment.
