Empowering you to speak, also means that you have to listen, or risk contradicting everything that might force you to admit that you never were fighting for freedom of speech, but just to be heard. Empowering you to open up means, I have to do everything in my power to ensure you never close; I must mark my words, stamp my actions, and enhance your spirit. I must breathe an existence that causes you to grasp for air. Empowering you means empowering me, because together we have the power to fulfill a purpose one can never fill!!!!
