Skimming Michael Maslansky's new book, The Language of Trust, I’m attracted to Chapter 2, which is entitled It All Starts with Words. And in that chapter, I stop in my tracks at these two sentences: “What I have learned is that the right language is always there. You simply have to find it.” Yes. Right. It’s THERE, not HERE. It’s available, but you have to go find it. We have learned that too. Whether it’s the few trying to be heard by the many, or the many hoping to be understood by the few, the right way to say it is, in fact, out there, somewhere. If we remember that it’s context speaking to no context, or different context, or hostile context, we’ll be off to a good start.
