Words are everywhere. They are a beautiful thing. They are helpful as well as sad, funny, entertaining, and esoteric. They make us think. They give us direction. They are the lyrics to our favorite love songs. They move us towards action. The written word is important on so many levels. Because of them, we are able to feel the emotion of someone who lived three hundred years ago. Because of words, we are able to learn from past mistakes. Because of words I will not get lost. Because of words I can operate machines. Because of words I have options.
