The Power of Words

Reading different blogs from other schools in different countries, I found this video. As we very well mentioned in our writing lessons that one of the main goals in writing is to create a picture in the reader's mind, the way in which we say things and how we say them can cause a great impact on others. Please watch the video and leave a comment. What do you think?
