The Next Universal Language

Happy International Mother Language Day! What's your language? Do you have only one? Don't let your language disappear because there are more than 6,000 languages right now in jeopardy.

While you may think English won't disappear any time soon, I think we should start looking for another international language to use, and I propose Turkish. Yes, it's time Turkish takes its rightful place; afterall, there are many countries that speak a form of Turkish and some are fearful that Turkish has taken on numerous negative "foreign" influences. No longer do Turks speak eloquent Istanbul Turkish.

Learn your language or a few well and your world will open up new pathways to look at everything you see or do. Pass on your love of language on this special day and everyday!
