1. An institution used for the betterment of something.
Ah, the time-honored, dramatically introduced , tirelessly overused euphemism "Correctional Facility". This euphemism is commonly used by women who are too ashamed to admit that their offspring has committed a crime/felony, and don't want to face the heat. We all know what it means, but do we ever look into the cracked emotions behind it? A juror, passively referring to the place of imprisonment as someplace where they can be stripped of their crime ridden ways. A woman at a book club meeting, not caring to admit that someone they know is in the slammer. A biographical author, trying to better the life of a person once locked in a prison cell. The bittersweet intentions of this euphemism have long been a low-ranking topic in any person's constantly stirring minds. We all know the meaning, but do we truly understand it? Correctional Facility. Correction. Does it seem like correction to you when a man is sentenced to death? I think not.
P.S. This has nothing to do with my opinions on the death sentence. I merely wish to point out the falsity of this euphemism. I try never to reveal opinions on this blog unless I have a very definite opinion. Thanks, guys!
