People Correctness

I don't *do* political correctness.  Because its, well, political.  And political isn't really about people.  Its not.  Politics are all about ideas, arguments, convincing someone your way is right.  So it stands to reason that political correctness isn't really interested in individual people, but in someone's idea of what is correct.  People are not all the a matter of fact there are no two people alike.  So there is no one correct way of addressing people.  People correctness...that's what I do.  Speak to each person as an individual and out of love.  It really doesn't matter so much what you say as how you say it, if your heart is in the right place you don't need the right words.  Use whatever words you want to talk about my daughter as long as you to speak to her and of her with love and respect.

I agree. I don't know how anyone could not speak to that cutie without love! I want to scoop her up and take her home with me :-)

Every day in every way do I love little Reagan! I speak with my voice, my words, my eyes, my hands and she always knows what I mean -- "YOU ARE SPECIAL! AND I LOVE YOU!" I couldn't agree more about it being about the heart not the exact words. That is true not only for Reagan, but for all of us. If we stop to think about our own experiences, we will know of times that poeple "get it wrong" but it doesn't matter because their heart was right.
