powerful words

Stop - a powerful word that brings the traffic to a halt.

Some anonymous but passionate person has used its impact to make a strong statement about the need for Australia to halt the dreadful torment of live animals being sent on hellish ships to die horribly in faraway places.

I wonder what message the purple graffiti are meant to convey? They do reveal that the spray-painter was an idiot, but I don't think that's the intended meaning. At least the lower one provides a colorful contrast to the sticker about animal cruelty.

This powerful symbol also relies on the colour and shape of the sign, it is recognisable without having to read the word. Maybe it is only recognisable to drivers and other road users though, not universally.

Interesting comment, Mary. It's a symbol as well as a word. I hadn't thought of that.
