It's funny how such a simple and small word can cause so much damage. It can: 1) Break the heart of the shy guy in highschool, who mustered up all his courage to ask a girl to the prom. 2) Mess up the life of a kid with a scholarship, who just suffered an injury on the field and asked if he could ever play again. 3) Change the path of a woman, who applied to get her PhD and was turned down. 4) Anger the parent of a toddler who refuses to obey in a public setting. 5) Cause sadness to a child who asks their mother if they have any food for dinner tonight. 6) Force people to make decisions they may not have made in other circumstances. 7) Send a young man to jail for thinking with his penis instead of his mind. 8) Shatter the self-esteem of a girl who asks if she is pretty. Sometimes one just needs to stop and be serious at times, you know? Thank goodness we have, "yes" otherwise, this world might be a rough place.
