The definition of the word 'unique,' according to the Oxford Dictionary: adjective- being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else One could say that each of these roses is unique. Not one is exactly like the other in this bouquet because they are not manufactured or man-made. That is a quality that I love about nature. Each of us is unique, even identical twins are not exactly alike in every way. Yet, the wordunique is being bandied about on radio, television and in the written media as if it is an adjective with degrees of quality. As in, It's the most uniquehome we've seen. Is it important that the definition of unique is being lost? I believe that it is. Why bother having definitions if the meanings of words are no longer important? Please, I know that new words and meanings are constantly being added due to new discoveries and new inventions. But is the media telling us that there is nothingunique left in this world?

hymn: "O Saving Host" or "O Salutaris Hostia" O saving Victim, opening wide,The gate of heaven to man below!Our foes press on from every side;Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow. To Thy great name by endless praise,Immortal Godhead, one in Three;Oh, grant us endless length of days,In our true native land with Thee. Amen
