The Power of Words

I couldn't initially think what to say about this one, beyond: Watch and Pay Attention to the Words!  And then I typed the paragraph below because, you know, words matter, and I can't shut up when handed a keyboard and powerful content.

Words have power to convey a story, emotion, build empathy, instill confidence and are the only way that we have to communicate how ever poorly through an imprecise medium.  And yet, we can still listen to someone else's story and understand something, about the person telling, about the world.  All in the careful choice, clever ordering and timely delivery.  I'll never be anyone's Point B, in the sense that Sarah Kay states, but I can be that point for anyone who asks.
