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?

Hello Miss Ale, I really liked that video. It was a very strong video. That woman that wrote the sign was really nice and kind to the man. It was really incredible when he started winning a lot of money because of what the sign said. It too was nice when, everybody looked at the sign beside the man and like reflect a little bit and thought "Poor man, It´s a beautiful day and he can´t see it, (Like the sign says), I will leave him some money." Hope you keep on posting many posts. See you tommorow.

Hi Miss Ale, I liked very much this video. The words can change the world and we can use words to sort many problems in the world like wars. Thanks for the video. I hope you continue posting videos like this.

Hi Miss Ale, I enjoy the video. Because I realized that what you saw can be ("showing")an impact to the other people. It also makes you think that you can saw the same worlds, but with an another meaning. "Im blind,please help me" its a telling sentence and "Its a beatiful day and I cant see it" showing. That woman was very nice and good to the man.
See you tomorrow.

An expression can change attitudes, can produce a smile, can make you be happy when other is enjoying,can make you cry, and also can make you stand in another shoes.

I liked when the women liked to help the old man. I think that the both things that were written on that piece cardboard were the same but one was straight to the point and the other no!!!!

If you change the little telling text who very fui people read into a showing text you change the expression on the other people knowing how this old men feels.

I liked a lot this post because in the video it shows that with only changing the words you can change the way that people think about what you want to say.

I think this is a great teaching, because sometimes when we speak to someone we don´t measure our words, and this might hurt the other
person´s feelings, or maybe he/she doesn´t understand what your trying to say. This is more or less what happened in this video, but when the woman wrote the same thing in different words, everbody gave much more money to the man.

WOW! The power of words!I was very surprised when I saw what the women was doing. At the beginning I thought she was going to steal his coins or something like that. But then I realized that she was helping him.
Poor man, he was blind.
And I too, liked when the poor blind man touched the women's shoes to recognize who it was.
Thank you!

I think is a very good video because only change the words to make a sentence powerful or showing and people understand what is he feeling. ONLY CHANGE IT FOR POWERFUL WORDS PEOPLE GIVE HIM MORE MONEY.

Hi Miss Ale that was a not so sad video but a strong one I think that is true the words are important in life and how is the different things of seeing and saying, the girl was kind because now we only see the outside and that girl that go to that men it was great because she look to the inside and she new that he was blind thats why he put that words "is a beautiful day and I can't see it " that is important and that is the only thing that, that man was thank for was the words that the girl put he don't care the money they only contact each other with the inside of each one so that is important.
See you tomorrow

Hi Miss Ale,
I loved the video, it was really nice what the woman did to the blind man.
It was really wierd that he recognized her because of her shoes!!
I first thaught the woman was going to steal the man's money but then she got the sign and started writing and I thought she was writing something bad! But when all the people started passing and giving him money I wanted to know what the woman wrote to the man.
It was a very good way to represent the phrase "I'm blind" for "It is lovely day but I can't see it.
Thanks for sharing this video!
