Interesting video. I saw this on a different site whose theme is that accumulating money for retirement isn't nearly as important as philosophically learning to appreciate one's surroundings etc. I found it ironic on that site in that that the blind man is obviously pleased that the change in wording has led to more contributions.
Interesting."Words are important" is more than just a saying, it's something that we should put in practice everyday.
Words do indeed matter. "Sticks and stones will break my bones..." is true only in a narrow sense. Words can influence people to help or harm others.
