For almost everyone, only the tiniest fraction of the words we say are ever recorded. Only in very special circumstances are a significant number of our words written down or recorded in audio or video medium. Yet each and every one of the words we say are recorded forever in what they created or destroyed in the world. What they created continues to create. What they destroyed is dead, never to create again. The world today is the consequence of every word spoken throughout all history leading up to this very moment. Where will it go from here? Speak thoughtfully.
