Words Yield Power

I was reading the Tweets shuffling down my monitor this afternoon when an Tweep posted a Tweet that grabbed my attention. It had a YouTube link on it, so with out hesitation I pointed my mouse pointer over to it and clicked on the link. This video popped up on the screen.

I love the message that this video sends because it transcends the power of communication on so many levels. But it also conveys a danger too of how we use these words. The misuse of that power can be deadly in terms of embellishment of the truth and meanings that these words hold. I do not want to diminish the message of this video, but for me, I love the purity of the message, so I will leave it at that.

Here is the Tweet that lead me to this video by @gmarkham AKA Mark Hamilton, who wrote: “The Power of Words, a short, touching, powerful video. http://youtu.be/Hzgzim5m7oU (via http://drewvigal.tumblr.com/)”

Nice video eh?

Source, who Tweeted this on Twitter: Mr. Mark Hamilton is a Journalism instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond, BC, Canada.

I was not a student of his, nor have I ever had the privilege of meeting him in person. And he does not follow me on the Twitter at this point in time.
