Words of Wisdom

If you give kids a language, they can use it. I think that’s what these educators fear. If you really educate these kids, they aren’t going to punch you in the face, they are going to challenge you with your own language.

Affect and effect can have various effects on your writing. In order to use affect and effect correctly, remember: affect which begins with an “a” means to act, which also begins with an “a”; and effect, which starts with an “e”, means the end or the result. For example: The storm affected many people, but it had no effect on me.
