DISCUSS: Communication Model: Sticks and Stones

Are you familiar with the phrase, ” Sticks and stones may break my bones,  but names will never hurt me.”?Think about that in relation to your reading on the importance of language choices,  The spirit of the “sticks and stones” phrase seems to be that words do not matter because they cannot hurt the listener.   Connect notes from reading and your own awareness/experience of thinking of a speaker’s words as “weapons” intended to harm or wording that may purposefully or unintentionally leave a bruise/a mark on listeners.. Initial posts need to refer to a specific point  of effective language choices from the reading.
