Yes, we know the spoken word is like a mighty sword. And in this dramatic and very powerful acceptance speech, Toni clearly stresses the importance of knowing how powerful this sword really is and the pains we suffer when it is misused and the power misunderstood. This is reality! This is captivating! Forever more, I will always say, '...what I do know, is that the bird is in your hand.'
