Bryant H. McGill

Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul - chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!

Amy Tan's quote refutes the childhood saying of "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me". We know that, sadly, words can be very hurtful and/or damaging.

Happy May, everyone!
