Katie Speaks:  18 years old. I am a Japanese – Chemistry double major at the College of William and Mary. Third weekend in. I go out to dinner with a guy I really like. He is a Prince Charming on his way to becoming a brain surgeon. The restaurant is French. Fancy. Crisp linen napkins in stunning white. The banter is Olympic Ping-Pong of wit, finesse, and charm.

Arm in arm, we stroll back to 17th century campus bricks. Residence hall has emptied into fraternity parties. Two twin beds, glow-in-the-dark star constellations on the ceiling, and a tiny humming fridge. Pink, poly-threaded carpet wall to wall. One window with a vanilla, plastic shade, pulled down for privacy.

Hours. Minutes. I learn what it is to be treated as less than human. An object. A thing of use to another. Less than a ghost. He leaves in his pin-striped, Italian-made suit. Shirt tucked in. Belt on. Tie in pocket.

When we have nothing less to lose except dignity, we find our greatest voice, speech, strength. So, I speak.
