Daily Prompt : Grasp

In response to prompt   :  Grasp

I was twelve when my father died. It was difficult for me to comprehend the meaning of death.

For several years I firmly believed my Dad will come back. My younger siblings and I found it hard to accept that we’d never see our Dad again.

If you could permanently ban a word from general usage, which one would it be? Why?

The word I’d definitely ban from general usage is the word , “Retarded”. These are some of the definitions of this word: less developed esp. mentally; slow to develop or occur; stupid, pathetic.

To me the word sounds derogatory, psychologically it affects the person who is called retarded, there can be a lot of reasons for someone to take longer to comprehend a sentence,word, a paragraph, that cannot or should not be the reason  to call the person  retarded.
