A Language That Expresses CareWe speak with words;but words are not just uttered,they are chosen.We use a language;but that language is not merely words,it is a unique way of choosing to be in the world.We teach others a way of being in the world;but they are not mere recipients,they also choose to show us their lives and hopes. J. Novak
