Keep calm ...

The power of words is in their meaning and tone not on how loud we say it or yell it... it only become noise we hear and not the words we hear or value.  

Words have power to hurt, the power to love, the power to encourage and the power to discourage.  Be careful how we use them ... control our temper... it can hurt anyone.
