When artists choose to write or create what’s urgent or passionate for themselves while holding up the window for others to peer into their very inner core and layering a mirror behind their art, then people might be moved by that art and see a part of themselves in it. That’s my definition of truly powerful art.

An example? To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee jumps immediately to mind.
