Hi Susan .. you are absolutely right - this is an amazing video and should be seen by all .. I'd seen it a little while back - but it still moves me ..

Rearranging words, rearranging them before they come out of our mouth too .. rearranging our thoughts ..

Brilliant - thanks for sending me over to Carla's blog .. cheers Hilary

Hi Hilary -

You're welcome. As bloggers and writers, we can be a positive or negative influence with our words. This video drove that point home.

Blessings,
Susan :)

What an absorbing video. I will remember to watch for the power of words in my writing.

I blogged about that too - people do not realize the power of words - whether in a book or face to face. You can build someone up or crush someone down!

Thank you for sharing this, Susan. When I first saw the message I was struck by the profound message. Something as readers and writers we can relate to, but needed to be heard by all.

Hi Carla -

I hope others will pass it on. This is too good not to go viral.

Blessings,
Susan :)
