I am awed by the power of words and how, when properly utilized, a minimal number of words can convey great ideas and have lasting effects. Gifted speakers and writers often use a select few words to maximum effect. As evidenced by the length of this article, I am not one so gifted.

Words reflect ideas, and when ideas are confused the words themselves become confused. When truth, freedom and decency are lost, convoluted thinking and contradictory words result.

"I've got two daughters. … I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." Barack Obama
