    Each day, roughly 205 billions emails are sent, 3.5 billion Facebook messages are posted, and 40 million tweets are shared. In short, we are talking, texting, tweeting, and chatting at a very high rate. But in this process of sharing so many words - both in speed and quantity - we ask: Do we treat words with the same care we once did? And, do we ever stop to truly consider their power?

    We also ask: What if the phrase “Actions speak louder than words” wasn’t always true? What if, in our modern times, it’s the opposite?

    Our conversation starts with the first of Don Miguel’s Four Agreements; then we take a ride through some of the stories that have elicited reactions online and offline over the past 4 months; and, lastly, we go back a decade to hear a story about Nick and his Mom, including an interview with Nick’s mom herself, Barbara Jaworski.
