You know what they say, about sticks and stones? Their damage can sometimes last much longer than broken bones . . . today, let’s consider the awesome power of what we say. You know, those little remarks we make, the sudden burst of furry, the unbridled words, that wildfire that sometimes destroys everything in its path. How many brothers and sisters will never again experience the love they once knew . . . why? Because of a hurtful word. How much heartbreak is experienced because of careless words?
The tongue has no bones, but it is strong enough to break a heart. So be careful with your words.

· I am sorry
· Forgive me

Pick up a phone, make that call you have been putting off and use some of those 12 important words… and when you lay your head on your pillow tonight see if you are not happier… just saying!
