As we mark a turning point in our world, it’s more important than ever to use your voice.
We no longer can assume that everyone has each other’s best interests in mind, and it’s our duty to work as hard as we can for positive and progressive change.
We must remember to listen to people’s differing ideas, so that we can actively understand their perspective. We have to be willing to hear things we may not agree with. We have to approach others with compassion and kindness, but also with grit and questions.
Ultimately we must stand up for what we believe in. Especially if what we’re fighting for is the greater good of all people, and our earth.
Today of all days this is more important than ever.
Today, tomorrow, and for the rest of your life, I challenge you to say in as many ways as possible what you believe in.
Use your voice, your presence, your writing, and whatever else you want to use, to show the world, and your circle what you stand for and against.
We must all take a stand.
