Reflecting on her grandma’s influence, Owens states, “She used to say that our tongues have the power to burn folks to the ground…it is so important to watch what we say or we may find ourselves helplessly standing by as the consequences of thoughtless words take full effect.” Out of harsh lessons learned through personal experience, Owens calls listeners to be mindful of what “cannot be unheard.” — Ollee Owens
