We all need to be heard. We all have things to say and opinions to be voiced and outcries needed to be acknowledged. Some of us use blogs to share our thoughts. Others use speeches. Some have no voice at all.
Ever heard of Free the Children? They have a vow of silence–on a specific day people pledge to be silent to recognize those who have no voice, those who are denied a right to an education, who can’t share their beliefs, who aren’t allowed to speak up. Malala Yousafzai said it best: “We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.”
I have a voice. I’m allowed to express my feelings and thoughts. Others are not. So through this blog, I’m going to speak up about things that matter, things that others cannot say. I have a voice, and I’m using mine to share my thoughts to the world, to share a light in a dark world.
