Lenten Wordle

This is a wordle of the top 100 things Twitterers
 are giving up for Lent.
The breakdown of the 15,000 tweets can be found on this website.
The font sizes are in direct correlation to the number
of people who claim to be giving that item up.

Here's what Sister Joan has to say:
"I gave up coffee creamer for Lent one year.
By the end of the tenth day, I began to love black coffee.
That's the year I learned that it isn't giving up things that counts.
Me? I became aware that only internal change really counts."
Joan Chittister
