Rarely do we envision ourselves exactly how others perceive or interpret us. This realization holds true for the use of language when compared to our exhibited daily actions.
People are defined by the accumulative history of their deeds, rather than by mere words. But language can be both reflective of behavior and have an influence on these behaviors as we move forward. Our language shapes the way we view our surroundings, and is a good everyday step toward a more inclusive community.
