Music holds so much power because words empower us and De-power us. The phrase "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" is such bull its a song made by people who's been picked on so much the only way they could make it through the torment was to sing this song over and over hoping to tune out the painful words slapping them in the face, and just maybe the bully will be so annoyed hell just leave um alone. sticks and stones can break your bones and words can kill your soul. We all must take responsibility for the words we use as people. We have a right to free speech as long as we don't infringe on other people rights. That can mean a lot but a good sum up would be "Be careful what you say you never know who's listing and what effect it might have, words have power and that's the power of music!!!!
