Some words make us smile - like these from someone named Bryan that were on a sign in my neighborhood several months ago:
Bryan probably smiled when he saw this word in reply:
Words send a definite message, don't they? The word on this license tag sends some sort of message. I didn't take this photo -- and the car and tag are not mine!
Words should be selected very carefully. Otherwise, they might send the wrong message, like on the signs below. I didn't take the first photo and don't remember how I ended up with it; I took the second and third ones from inside my car.
Words often cause pain or hurt. That's something I experienced earlier this week. There were words I wish I could take back but I can't.
The words in the following pictures reflect pain, victimization, tragedy and so much more. I took these at the concentration camp at Mauthausen. If you click to enlarge the second picture, you might be able to read some of the words scratched into the walls.
