An Experiment in Words on KSL TV 3-30-14



"Words can build you up. Words can bring you down," says the song by Hawk Nelson which this viral video is set to. "But it's not the song that has so many people watching it on You Tube; it's the incredible message the video sends, states KSL writer Jordan Ormond on March 30, 2014.

"In the video, set to the 'words' by Hawk Nelson, each boy in a LDS church group wrote something positive on a note card about each girl in the group. All the while the girls unknowingly played games in a separate room."

Fortunately, my youngest daughter had the opportunity to be part of this viral video with a powerful message. Words can destroy reputation, cause heartache or ruin or they can lift, cheer, encourage. Let's use our words to build NOT destroy!

Here a link to the article and news report on KSL which aired on March 30, 2014 regarding this You Tube Video: An Experiment in Words. 

April 7, my daughter, her church leaders, and other young women will appear on Studio 5 at 1:00 p.m. The following day on April 8, I will be on Studio 5 for my cooking segment also at 1:00 p.m. 
SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah youth group's music video is going viral, but it's not the song that has so many people watching it on YouTube; it's the incredible message the video sends.
In the video, set to the song "Words" by Hawk Nelson, each boy in the LDS Church group wrote something positive on a note card about each girl in the group. All the while, the girls unknowingly played games in a separate room.
One by one, each girl was brought into a room and asked to hold up a blank poster board in front of a camera. The boys then posted their note cards on the girl's poster board.
Each time the video shows a girl turning over her poster board to read it, there are smiles all around.
"If we achieved 100 percent smiles here, think what we could do to the whole world," the video states.

Those who participated are thrilled with the positive the video has received.
"It's weird having everybody at school be like, 'Oh, I saw you in this video!' said Kaiah Nelson, one of the girls who participated in the video.
"But it's also really cool to see it go viral, 'cause then everyone can see what we did," she told the video's producers.
Leaders of the group are amazed with how quickly the video is spreading.
"We had one of our young women show the video in their school, and then went back into each individual classroom, and the school had the classes do this activity in their classrooms," Emily Eddington, a Young Women advisor, told producers. "I love that this is spreading."
"We're influencing people every day with our words, whether its for good or for bad," said Young Women president Kristi Durfey. "And if we can realize the impact that it has on other people's lives, why not lift people up instead of tearing them down?"
