Word Up

Wonderful words! Just because we have more opportunities to exchange ideas, doesn’t necessarily lead to a richer experience. Texting is purely utilitarian, and so many devalue English and its many respectful examples of apprehending words from other languages into the melting pot that is English. Comments following news articles are being phased out, because trolls with nothing to add just spew hate speech lacking even basic punctuation and spelling. We are losing rich expression of ourselves and understanding of others when we fail to use and comprehend really good words. I love words, and am pleased to find someone else who does.
