Freedom Of Speech

Rav Shalom Schwadron was once staying as a guest with a family. One time nature called so R' Shalom asked one of the children "Where is the room without a mezuza?".

The gemara [Pesachim 3] learns from the fact that the torah refrains in Parshas Noach from saying the word "tamei" and instead says "that is not tahor" that one should always speak in a refined manner.The gemara tells a story to illustrate the point. R' Shalom provided us with a contemporary application.

The definition of man according to Unkelos is a "talking spirit". A persons speech is a reflection of his soul.

Food for thought in todays world where vulgar speech is the norm.
