Rob's Journal

Thursday Evening, January 24, 2002 .......... Words are very important. What I say, and how I say it, tell others so very much about me. Words can hurt. I Know. Words can heal. I know. Words can provoke thought and feelings. But, as powerful as words can be, actions are even moreso. The fastest justice, for me, comes when one of my students reminds me that I said that they didn't have to answer this question or do this section of the assignment. It's then when I have to say to them, "'re right; my bad." In doing this, we've both learned something: I'm reminded that I'm human, and they know that I'm a man of my word.
