George Washington stated, If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led like sheep to the slaughter. What good is a freedom if we do thing with it? Whatever you call it, conversation, dialogue, discourse, chat, communication, speech: TALK, where has it gone? A television show entitled Lie to Me focused on a character by the name of Dr. Lightman. He was a truth expert or a lie expert, depending on if your glass is half empty or half full. He never listened to what people said. Dr. Lightman focused on body language and facial expressions. Is this perhaps the reason conversation is slipping out of the rmal grasp of life? Do we think people are lying so much we cant have a conversation? Do we spend more time studying people than actually listening to them?
