|Womens Marches in USA.|
Then there are other words that take root at times. I am struck by how many times sitting in a coffee shop or just walking or on the train I hear peoples' conversations and they are continually interspersed with the word "like." How many times people, especially young people do not speak directly. It is I was "like" this or I was "like" that, or they were "like" this or they were "like" that. I do not know what is the explanation for this. Here is my guess. This comes out of a period when, especially the younger folks did not know what was happening in their world and in their lives. As a result they were not able to speak precisely, not confident to speak directly. So instead they were "like" this and they were "like" that. My guess is that the "like" business will decline in speech now that the women's marches have launched the Resistance Movement against Trump. More people especially women will see they have to take action, will take action and will not have to be "like" any more. Will "do" now, will be "precise" now, will be "direct" now.
From their struggle, from their action will come a new and more precise and direct speech.
