  • I think that this article touches on all the points on how language is so important. not only does languagebe help us communicate with others but it also helps us express ourselves in a much deeper level. As Megan said without language we wouldn’t be able to express ourselves and communicate with others as easily as we can now.

    • Dear Teresa,
      I really liked your post! I like how you said, “By trying to see both sides of the story we can understand what others are feeling, therefore helping us to respond to the situation at hand.” I agree with you because it is important to form our opinions rather than just believe the stereotype or single story point of view. In addition, I like how you said that we need to understand each other’s feelings because it is important to have empathy in order to understand why someone behaves in some way, rather than assume the stereotype. By understanding someone’s feelings, we can respond in a respectful way and help them. Great job!
