Living simply in the wild

Wake up Wednesday: Hate is a strong word

If you follow us on Facebook you may have seen, or may not have seen…Facebook is really good as practicing censorship these days…an update we posted on Sunday.

Junior and Kman were at the kitchen table coloring, this is actually an activity they get along so well at. Junior takes the ‘teacher’ role with Kman, he names all the colors for him, shows him how to color in the lines and teaches him other important things like:

Kman, we can’t say hate. It will break peoples feelings.

I hope young children grasp this concept. That the things we say can actually hurt and break people. I’ve never agreed with saying “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me”. This is just not true no matter how much we try to convince ourselves of it.

So please, if Junior knows we shouldn’t hate…we should all realize it.
