No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
While I definitely won’t try and compare any of the untimely deaths that seem to be upon us, I will say that this man’s words are a very Jewish concept. G-d created the world with ten “statements”, and Chazal call that speech. While we can’t actually describe, in any sort of reality, what H-shem really does or did, speech is the closest thing Chazal (the Rabbis) decided that this action resembled. It is clear based on the very fact that the entire world was created with speech, that we have the ability to create realities with our words every day. We have to be very cautious as to the things that come out of our mouths because we never know what reality might be created, good or bad, based on our words. So while it took the death of a man to generate this post, I will say, those are some very wise words.
