Speak is a poetic narrative which is purposefully minimalistic and flawed. It addresses the lack of dialogue within society, in regards to not only disability issues but all differences in general. History has shown that this silence can lead to catastrophe and will likely continue to do so. Therefore, speaking up is vital. It is not a matter of disability awareness, but awareness of all humanity. Speak is odd, and imperfect but it is still beautiful and that is the point.
