Why is it SO important to think about HOW we say things, and not just with our tone, but with our bodies, our faces, and our attitude?

How will YOU make a difference? Write your goal on your paper of how you will change the way to speak to others.

So next time you say something, remember to think about HOW you say you say it with your face, your tone, and your body language.
