I wish you a Voice
… a voice that would sing for the voiceless in the world
… a voice that would write letters to the editor of your local paper
… a voice that would let your elected politicians
    know when they are not standing up for justice and mercy
… a voice that would echo the cries of the innocent, the tortured, the unjustly tried,
the abused, the homeless, the hungry, the lonely, the fearful, the grieving
… and a voice that would express honesty to yourself and your loved ones.

malalaMay each of us be a Malala-Voice
in some way,
in some time,
in some situation,
remembering that
“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” <Malala Yousafzai>
