The Power of the Spoken Word

by Jan Yuill

So true, Mr. Filler!

In your article, President-elect Obama: Leadership already, you put your finger on the magic. “President-elect Barack Obama is a source of great reassurance to the entire nation that better days lie ahead. For the first time in nearly a decade, the American people have an elected leader with not only an instinctive grasp of the power of the spoken word, but who also recognizes the desperate hunger in our nation to rise above petty political differences to rekindle our national sense of well-being.”

President Obama is developing the trust and hope of a nation because he is a man of integrity; he is ‘of the people;’ and he speaks words that inspire and point to a better future.
