A culture’s language reflects the values of that society, and our shared use of that language reflects our agreement with those values.
Today I examine how our use of common idioms and proverbs denigrates animals and contributes to our violence against them — and offer some compassionate versions to replace the more violent ones.
Every time we open our mouths, we have the opportunity to reflect kindness and compassion; or we have the potential to reflect violence.
My hope is that we aspire to the former.
