Language allows us to celebrate, to cherish, to engage, expressive and understand, to learn and to teach, to discuss, inquire, and challenge. We owe much of our live experiences to language, and it is not a stretch to say that language is the thread that bind us to others and gives meaning to our lives.
To quote Toni Morrison:
"To die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives."
