Lead Me to Wisdom

Words.

They drop from our mouth so quickly.

We rarely stop to think.

They just flow out of us like a river, a stream of sounds, a flicker in the atmosphere.

And then just as quickly they vanish as if we never said them.

Right?

Wrong.

I once read an illustration that impacted me like an asteroid. I was 12 or so then, and I remember it to this day. There was a native warrior who was hurting many people with his words.
