Words are one of man’s greatest gifts. Can you imagine a world without them?? Words are a gift that can bring happiness or a burden that can bring sadness. With words you can shape your future or live in your past. Our words are who we are, where we have been and where we are going.  Words can help make you smart or they can help make you stupid.  Always choose your words wisely because once spoken you can never get them back.  The choose is yours.
