Episode 103 is an energetic and insightful conversation with Lori LeVar Pierce. A Wider Vision of the World.
Take a moment – take the time – to sit with your own life experiences and to “watch your language go by.” Our language and our experiences – our culture, both small and large – are what make us uniquely human.
Language is humanity’s survival tool. It fosters deep connections between people. Let’s look at our institutions, families, and communities and ask ourselves: “How can we ensure that everyone understands languages, how to listen, and how to speak, so that they can express their deepest humanity and connect with others?” Language saves lives. Let’s work together to create a better future for all.
