Mastered to Master: Restoring the Power of Words
The power of words and the importance of thinking well need to be reconsidered. How is language, something that is so core to the human experience, so carelessly tossed around, or even worse, distorted beyond recognition? Why aren’t we fascinated with words? What has happened to our child-like curiosity? Words, so much more than the sum of their letters, have the power of life and death. Nathan Adams, a dyslexic, wants to challenge you to think differently about words. If we do not reclaim the vitality of words, our laziness with language will perpetuate the epidemic of not truly knowing what we are saying. Commonly used words, such as love, pain, forgiveness, and "I'm sorry" will continue to be carelessly defined and ignorantly recycled. It is time for the reclamation of our words.
