"It’s an important name. The most important name in the whole world. I say it out loud every day so the world remembers how important it is. And that it still matters to someone.  And also so it doesn’t disappear.  Like she did."

"His voice is calm and his smile is that special one he gives me when I need it the most. A smile that says a lot without any words at all. It says that I’m okay and he’s okay and so is everything else in the world right this minute. And for a few seconds, while that smile is shining it’s light, a bright ray bursting through a worry storm, it actually feels true."

Words may seem innocent enough, but I'm here to tell you that they're a way bigger deal than people know.  They are so powerful, in fact, that they can change us in a single solitary second.  Words can propel you so high that you could fly straight up to the sky blue.  Or can seem so heavy  on your shoulders that you think you'll never stand straight again.  And there's one reason for that.  Words make us feel.  And feelings are everything.  They control who we are and how we live and every single choice we make.
