Have you ever noticed that some people seem to be on auto pilot towards the negative. It doesn't matter what idea or thought you throw out to them, their first reaction is always negative.

Language is a growing, changing thing. At our house we enjoy talking about the roots of different words and the similarities between different languages. It's fascinating to study how languages have morphed over the centuries as different people groups have migrated around the earth.

The English language is changing so rapidly because of the way technology has connected us all together. Sometimes I wonder if we would even be able to recognize our language in a couple hundred years. Maybe our great grand kids will all speak to each other only in acronyms.
