Take a feather pillow and climb a high tower on a windy day. Once on top, cut open the pillow and let the feathers loose in the wind. Then, climb down from the tower and gather all the feathers and place them back in the pillow. Impossible, you say. I would have to agree.

You see, the feathers are like the hurtful words that leave our mouth. Once they are spoken, you cannot get them back. You may think “I’m sorry” makes it all better, but the most sincere “I’m sorry” cannot undo the damage done by hurtful words.
