Did we find our Voice?

Hello,

One the first day of class, when we were all nervous and edgy. After the introduction and syllabus was passed out, our Professor said that one of the main things she wanted to help us do was, find our voice. She said it was there but we needed to discover it. As I think about the last quarter, I would say that yes we found our Voice. Maybe it is just beginning to sprout for some of us and other are well on their way to blooming but we did discover it. Realizing that you are not trapped and unable to speak is a powerful weapon and it must be use for the good of all. I don’t think that most people realize that in America it is your right. Many countries in the world do not allow their citizen to voice their concerns. And some will even kill you for it. A great English philosopher Edmund Burke once said “The only thing necessary for triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” I would insist, the only thing necessary for triumph of evil is for good men and women to say nothing. Now that we have realize that we have a voice let’s make a difference. Do not sit idly by and watch the world and especially our country go down the toilet. Be a voice to be reckoned with and Be heard. It is choice.
