Power of words AND the power of music - the right music (Sousa just wouldn't have worked!): the combination in this video was perfect...I've already forwarded it to family and friends, thanks for showing us.

Perfect. Simply perfect. I just ran it a second time for my wife, and it was even better. Thank you for posting it.

Thanks for sharing, Solo. Great message. I believe this is from same folks... if not, the same idea.

Wow! I just saw and responded to the thread with the video of the father shooting his daughter's laptop. Wish he - and she - could have seen this reminder about the power of words to unite or divide, to encourage or belittle, to build up or to destroy.

Words are like atomic energy. Handle with care!

i hate to be the debbie downer, but i fail to see how this in any way shows the power of words. if anything, it shows the power of manipulating human emotions through artificial scenarios and proper music (try watching it with the sound off).

i think it would be an interesting experiment to actually see which sign, if either, would produce more generosity.

maybe i should just keep my thoughts to myself.
