The Power of Words and Heroes

“Words are the keys to the heart.” Chinese proverb

The Chinese proverb wasn’t far wrong in my opinion either. Do you realise how powerful your words are? I remember a poem we used to sing back at school that went along the lines of; “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” Not quite sure where the poem came from, but one thing life has taught me is that, that’s a lie.

Our words are powerful, and the can either add value or detract it. So just as kind and important as it is to be a generous with our finance, time, and resources in our world today. It is equally important to be generous with our words. Our words count, and what we do with those words, or how we spend them matter too.

Unsung heroes are a group of students passionate about showing appreciation of those in the armed forces, serving our country on the front line every day.

When your thousands of miles away from your family, for long periods of time, and living in uncertainty on behalf of a country. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, or where you come from. A simple thank you to these men can make a huge difference in the days when reality hits, and things get tough.

In just nine days this campaign has reached over 1180 views, with only 131 people stopped to show their appreciation. Please support this cause, by taking 30 seconds of your time to register today.

Don’t forget the power of your words.

    1. Thanks Sally! I have passed this on to my friend! Thank you so much for leaving this message. Would you mind if I passed your email onto the girl involved in the campaign, so she can enter your message onto the site for the guys? I have a few friends who have sons in Afghan. They go through so much, and coming home is such a big adjustment for many of them. Do you know anyone in the Army? x
