The Power of Words

by Anne Bennett on November 13, 2011

Pardon my sentimentality if you’ve already viewed this brief video that’s been making the rounds on youtube. Upon investigating its provenance I discovered that it was produced by a British copywriting company as an example of the power of words (the life-breath of copywriters).

Despite its commercial intent, it contains an inspiring message: choose your words carefully. They have the power to sooth or sting, embrace or alienate, uplift or discourage.

Remember the adage we used to chant to each other as children: “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”?

Don’t believe it for a minute.

This is lovely. It gives me hope during all this unrest in our society.
