Words Create


Ha! That's incredible that I just opened today's "protect our speech" shmiras halashon email* and this is what I see. (Thank You, Hashem!!)

Words said about us define our place in the world. Once that "place", our reputation is defined - particularly if the definition is negative - it is very hard to reverse.

Just as Gd created the word with words (i.e. "And Gd said, ' Let there be light,' and there was light.). So too human beings create with words.
