We'd love your important words for the amazing 'THE FOURTH PLINTH' living statue event!

Alan's BBC interview:
I'm one of those people on Antony Gormley's Fourth Plinth 'living statues event' at Trafalgar Square, London, on:
Monday 27th July 2009 from 2pm - 3pm.

The British Library has now archived the project and you can see Alan on Antony Gormley’s Trafalgar Square Fourth Plinth Project:

Alan's Fourth Plinth page:

I'd would love as many of you as possible to send me your very "important words" and I will read out as many as I can during my hour on the plinth.

What's important to you that can be summed up in just one single word?
Is it a word that's important to the world, or is it something personal like someone's name?

All of your important words are welcome whoever you are. You can give a reason why the word is important to you, but you don't have to. You can include your name, or remain anonymous.
