How do they do it?

Put themselves out there, exposed, vulnerable, under the spotlight.
The fearless speaking words the world will hear.


There were some who defined words as mere sounds uttered from a mouth.

But words had power.
The power to arise courage in the hearts of men, to crush confidence, to invoke love, to provoke hate. Words had the power to open minds and initiate dialogues, to start wars, or end them.
Those little things written on thin sheets could make a hurting heart laugh or a complacent heart weep.

According to the playbill, the play was by an anonymous writer.

I prefer to be anonymous.
