Words are powerful vessels. They can inspire or destroy. And oncespoken, they are impossible to retrieve.
Each of ushas the ability to make an impact. We can snarl at the barista, or we can smile. We can be callous to the mother struggling to get on the train with a pram, or we can be kind. We can shout and swear at other drivers on the road, or we can show calm and patience.
The way we act can make someone’s day, or break it, and once we realise we hold that power, the only responsible thing to do, is to use it wisely.
