Sticks and Stones

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me! How wrong this little poem is! It would be more accurate to say: "Though sticks and stones inflict great pain, their hurt will fade away. But just one sharp and biting word brings harm that's here to stay."

Our words are powerful. With them we can build up and encourage, or we can tear down and destroy.

  1. Carla, I love your revision of that little poem. And the photo is outstanding - I'm picturing myself in that canoe!

  2. Excellent and oh, so true! Wounds heal, but words can hurt for a very long time indeed. Lovely photo, too. :)

  3. So very true. Great picture. Too bad canoing season is over for the year.
