Have you heard of the group “One Direction?” If not, they are a singing group. Four boys from England and one from Ireland. There names are Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan , Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne. Well a few weeks ago I read something that got me thinking.
At one of the “One Direction” concert when Niall was singing his solo part a “fan” yelled out, “Niall your ugly and you don’t deserve to be in One Direction.” Niall heard what he said and handed his mic to Louis to sing the rest of his part. Zayn walked over and Niall buried his head on Zayn’s shoulder and just cried. Zayn hugged him through the rest of the song. After the song was over the whole group took a break and walked back stage to calm Niall down. When they finally came back on stage Niall was still upset and whipping tears from his face.
People keep telling Niall that his is ugly so much that he believes it. People tell him that the group is better with out him. It really hurts him. He has looking into the mirror and told that his ugly.
When I read this I remembered what happened to Harry. When “One Direction” first came out, they were performing on “Red and Black.” Harry didn’t take in enough air to sing his solo part on their song “What Makes You Beautiful.” He felt really bad. Watch this video:
Now words are VERY POWERFUL!!!!!! If it hurts Niall to hear someone yell out that he’s ugly and read it all the time. If Harry can get hurt by reading BAD comments. The words can hurt!!!!!!
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. (NKJV)
Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. (NKJV)
Now GOD gave Harry and Niall their sing voice, them playing instruments and all their other gifts. Don’t you think that we should NOT put them down? Do you know the saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me?” It should go like this, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can hurt me the most.” Words bring life or they bring death. Words are very POWERFUL!!!!!!!!!!

GOD created every member of “One Direction.” HE loves them, HE died for them, HE has given them their talents and HE hurts when someone puts them down!!!!!!!
So if any of us can’t say anything nice about anyone. Let us NOT say anything at all!!!!!!!!
