The meaning of words.

Are we devaluing some of the most important words in our language in a desperate pursuit of being noticed? Once upon a time (at least that’s how I feel – or maybe just want to), words like hero, courage, incredible, horrible, magical and epic all seemed as if they were used sparingly – now it feels like every other click-bait headline or Facebook update includes some sort of controversial, hyped or just plain over-the-top jargon. Are we losing our ability to communicate?
