Today's Wordle answer July 8

Today's Wordle answer is: VOICE.

"I have a voice!", yells Colin Firth towards the end of The King's Speech, one of the greatest films of all time. Yes, today's word is "VOICE", which needs very little explanation here from me. It's your voice. It can be used to speak, to communicate, and sometimes to change lives, for both better and worse.

Speaking of which - it would definitely be a nasty move to use the power of your voice to spoil the answer to today's Wordle puzzle for anyone who hasn't yet played the game today. And before you ask - yes, tweeting about it counts as using your voice. This is the 21st century. Voices don't necessarily require vocal chords anymore.
