Words to Make You Think

Here’s a very interesting article from the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) which I picked up from LinkedIn.

It commences with:
       What do you think of when you read the words ‘inclusion’ or ‘diversity’?

Did you know that, ironically, the word ‘inclusion’ originally meant to shut someone in as a form of imprisonment or that the heart of the word ‘diversity’ means to turn in different directions?

View the original article from Susie Dent, honorary vice-president of the SfEP here: https://blog.sfep.org.uk/inclusion-diversity/

At the end of the article, you are encouraged to give feedback on what comes into your mind when you think of these words: ‘inclusion’ and ‘diversity.’

My reaction was to come up with another word that may inspire you to think. What does the word ‘sanity’ mean to you. Please leave your comments below and, perhaps, suggest more words to make people think.
