Power of Tongue / by Kenan Weaver

Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.

An event yesterday triggered me writing this post. I have always been an advocate for freedom of speech especially when in the realm of the soapbox. Yesterday I witnessed by my own account the powerful force of speech. I got into comedy with a mission of having a purpose behind every joke to invoke thought. I believe there is no place for censorship in comedy but yesterday taught me I kinda see why the word exists. Like a young swordsman not yet knowing how to control his blade wielding a mic has its own ramifications, as uncle Ben always said with great power comes great responsibility, so for all that uses speech as a form of expression choose wisely my friends.
