I just wanted to let you know
I talked to God last night.
He didn’t say much,
And neither did I.
But what words we did say
Gave me such small hope,
That even a twice prodigal son
Can still find a way home.
the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
