In our current world, “giving-on-and-with” is an interesting process that initiates the critical question of how people not willing to understand others through language and culture move forward. Language is constantly evolving, each generation speaking to its own cultural identity differently than the one before. We’ve all heard the phrase “getting lost in translation,” and this is a huge crisis of language happening today. Loss of language equates to loss of identity, culture, and community. Without “giving-on-and-with,” we are unable to emphasize with this sense of loss others are feeling, creating gaps in a global community striving to move forward.
