Notable Quote

Greetings, dear readers.

I saw a quote sometime ago that is sticking with me – sort of the way an invisible splinter does: that poke under skin that you can’t quite see or grab and can’t get rid of, can’t let go of, can’t forget.

This is it:
Go to where the silence is and say something. – Amy Goodman, investigative journalist, columnist, author

Oh.
There are so many ways to understand this simple sentence.IMG_4709
Go where something needs to be said and say it.
Go to where someone or something important can’t speak for themselves and say it.
Go to where no one has said anything before and say it.
When no one else will speak up – say it.
Be willing to be heard and say it.
Use your outside voice – say it.

What is it you would say if you just said it? There’s someone waiting to hear it.


Readers, I hope you use your outside voice. I, for one, will be glad to hear what you have to say. May you all be safe and well. I am grateful you are here.
