Hey, little buddies!
Last week I wrote to you about being careful how we use words. Have you ever thought about how powerful words are?

I used to have a bad habit of insulting my friends. I guess I picked it up from watching television. It seems on TV everybody always has a clever, funny thing to say at just the right moment. So I guess we just followed that example and slammed each other just for fun. We were just kidding, so we figured there was no harm done.

But later in life I realized that most people don’t like to be insulted, even as a joke. They may laugh on the outside, but their feelings inside can really be hurt. There are other ways of being friendly or being funny. It just takes more thought.

Remember to be careful how you speak to people, ok?

Until next time,

Uncle Rick
