Words Can Never Be Unsaid

As a writer, I understand the power of words that are put down on paper or on one's favorite word processing software. Words have the power to generate powerful emotions that can make one afraid, sad, happy, elated or any number of other emotions. Words are conduits to power. Ask any politician's speech writer and they will tell you. A well-chosen word is more important than any campaign contribution. An ill-chosen word could end a campaign. It could start a war. Someone might even die.
