A broken bone can heal, but the wound a word opens can fester forever. – Jessamyn West

Sometimes I have this fear.  I fear that my boys will be crushed by cruel words.  I want to protect them from those words.  And yet, I know that it is inevitably for them to experience the hardships of life.  I just hope that they can understand that most of those words don’t matter (though they hurt) and don’t inflict those words on anyone else.
