The power of twenty-six letters cannot be overstated. The letters form words that form sentences capable of transcending emotion, visuals and multi-dimensional characters from the mind of the writer to the mind of the reader. The letters are so magical that one can travel all over the world and never leave their home. Is it a wonder slave owners enacted laws to prevent persons of color from learning to read. The slave owners knew the power of the letters and were determined to keep this magic away from slaves that those who violated the slave codes were subject to severe, beatings and even death. As a writer, I view the letters as instruments that can heal and empower. Writing is my passion. It allows freedom to express my ideas on paper in my own words.
