Choosing What We Use" is dedicated to the idea of the utilization

There is a drastic
increase in today's society of negative attacks through words
- be it politicians, athletes, parents, children, etc. Some have
led to fatal outcomes. Words can and do hurt. They injure the
speaker and the receiver. Our society is in dire need of change
in this area and for all citizens to become aware and sensitive
to the words they use. One speaker recently said that the only
way to control your tongue is to control your mind and emotions.
During a May 1, 2010
commencement ceremony at the University of Michigan, President
Barack Obama talked about receiving letters from some Virginia
kindergartners. One of the letters that stood out to him asked
a very simple, yet profound question, "Are people being nice?"
Expressed within this simple question is the need for this program.
We know all too well and too many times that people are not
being nice, and are using words as weapons.
