BLOG – GIFT DAY 246 :: how do you use your voice?

5 Sep

I finally saw The Butler tonight.

The movie poster says:  “One quiet voice can ignite a revolution.”

It was moving, which is the point of a movie. To take us to a place we have never been before. Or maybe take us to a time we don’t want to remember.

Either way, I cried my way through it for many reasons.  The struggles, the conflicts, the change that our country has gone through, wrestled with, and continues to grapple with and understand.

It reminds me of something I learned in college: we all have a voice. 

Some of us make our voices known by screaming at the top of our lungs, others by voting with our wallets, and others still by just sticking to it with an unfathomable strength and grace.

The funny thing is that it takes all kinds of powerful voices at varying levels to usher in change and sing the praise of progress.

We all have a voice.
So, how do you use yours?

More tomorrow.
