Sticks and stones...
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." This may be something you remember from your childhood, but it is actually not true. With sticks and stones the wounds most likely will heal, but words...words can cut like a knife and they may impact a lifetime. So choose your words wisely and don't say something you might regret. You can't retract the words you say and take them back. While others who are the recipients of your words may forgive you for what you said, they won't forget. The words may linger in their head for a long, long time. So think before you speak and don't say anything that you would regret. After all, it's the right thing to do and it models the way for others.
