Words, words, words, they’re just words. We give them the power to hurt us, but put little emphasis on the power to help us. Yet, many people have changed the world with their words. An influential speech or a spunky inclination to stand up for your beliefs, words are significant. I’m studying English/journalism because I want to change the world with my words. There are many ways in which I desire to express myself. My words could offer a solution, validate or alter someone’s beliefs, give insight to an unfamiliar situation or simply entertain and get a laugh out of others. Whatever the reason, I want my voice to be heard and for my words to have purpose. Words are powerful and we need more people who recognize the strength of their own voice. I always wonder where the world would we be if no one took advantage of the liberty “freedom of speech”. Where would we be without our founding fathers who courageously provided the words that make the U.S what it is today? Would the world be wrongfully divided if Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King never took a stand to fight for their rights? Words, words, words, they’re just words. Actually, they’re MORE than just words. Words mean something and are often very momentous. Historical figures revolutionized our world with their words,now I want my chance.
