I agree with the power of language,the right words can lead a couple towards happiness, the wrong words, can separate them forever. It can move people do greater good, as in the "I have a dream" or lead people to distruction as in Hitler's case and the German people. The emotion content behind the words I believe move us and can also make people misunderstand or shape their memory as in the case of Sunny and her husband, to unjustified conclusion. Who knows the amount of wrong doing done by detectives or lawyers who desire to win at all cost. And language it's really plays a key in the importance of how we live our life and our concept of the way words are turned around to fit a purpose.
