The Power of Words

Words don't just have different meanings... They have different power.
An 11-yr-old student is sitting in front of me right now, proudly wearing the new trucker hat his mom bought for him.
In black letters on a white field:
Fuck the World
and facing the wearer on the underside of the brim:
Encouragement from mom? Or just a lack of power in the only word that ever got my mouth washed out with soap?
