The Power of the Spoken Word

This video by Leah Harris ,spoken word artist and survivor of the youth mental health system who was orphaned when both of her parents who were diagnosed with schizophrenia died, is one of the most powerful videos I have ever watched.  h/t @opliberation1 and @msanthropics

    Very well done indeed!!!!
