Fighting for beliefs needs to be relabelled

Using more positive language a good way to create healthier society

Re: I don’t want to be tolerated (Column, Jan. 4)

Thank you to Charla Huber for her article. I agree that acceptance is a much healthier way of being and I believe it can lead to a more wholesome community.

I would suggest that we stop “fighting” for what we believe in. How about simply challenging something or working for what we want? Why not encourage competition to exchange the language –  and thus the behaviour – of fighting for or against something in this grand new year?
