I don’t have to add to the conversation to be heard

Something that really spoke to me in our last class was the notion of feeling like you have nothing else to add to the conversation of your topic. It also can feel that with such a large topic like mine (capital punishment), nothing I say really matters anyway and all sides have already been argued for decades. However, what I took away from class was thinking about my audience and how I can bridge a gap, rather than fix a problem. There are people out there like me, so what do they want to read? Maybe if I let go of the pressure of trying to figure out how to try and please the most amount of people, I can actually give myself the space to write something that matters.
