Words and Actions

June 9th, 2013
This is the third of three articles I am writing about the recent CNN article.

I had no idea, the long lasting damage words or actions can have on an individual. The memory of these issues are still adversely affecting individuals, decades later.
“These are issues as I’m driving across the country I’m hearing so much,” he says. “I’m having firsthand conversations with people losing loved ones because of suicide. I’ve had adults break down and cry 30 to 40 years later because of something that happened in high school.”
Words can hurt as much as your actions.
Words can comfort as much as your actions.
Choosing the latter is the only option.
