Since I was a little girl and first began to know of wrongs, I have been burdened. I look around me, I listen, I see, and I am weighted down.
There is so much need, so much injustice, so many faces that stare back at me from across the world, so much I cannot do.
But then I hear a voice, speaking to me, saying:
You have a voice.
Else you are like a camera which does not see…
…a strap which does not carry…
…instruments which do not write…
…stars which do not shine light.
Speak up for those who are voiceless, those who cannot tell their story.
They have a story waiting to be told.
Do not always remain silent.
“Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow. “-Isaiah 1:17
“For if you remain silent at this time … you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?”-Esther 4:14
How will you use your voice today?
