It's true, words fail us sometimes and they may also hurt like hell, they can destroy friendships and bring about pain and discomfort but most of the time words heal, they convey hope, they communicate love and kindness and instill faith. Words give meaning and they remind us of why we must go on and move forward. Words provide solace and give the gift of forgiveness, and yes they might fail us and betray us but more often than not they save us.
