Words do mean things!
People throw around words all the time without thought of the consequences. People use words to bring images to a persons mind but then do not think they have consequences in people’s memories. Mr. Kerry came to the podium and said he was “reporting for duty.” Those words brought back a flood of images to Vietnam Vets and they relived those images all over again. They had all those images locked away in their minds and his words unlocked them. The results are evident from the Swift Boat ads and the response in the polls to his words.
Word so mean thing even in every day life. Words mean thing when talking to your family, they mean things when talking to your boss, they mean things when talking to your friends and they even mean things when talking to God. Words do mean things!
