speak up

Charity is no substitute for justice withheld.

Love that pic! Thank you again. For the past several days, I have been a lone voice raising an issue along these lines in an organization with which I work. Each day I think about shutting up and forgetting about it, but we are working for justice.

How can we possibly expect justice on a grand scale if we behave carelessly and thoughtlessly, or worse, disenfranchise the people with which we are working?

Yes, speak up! Even when the injustice seems trivial to the greater work we are trying to do. The naysayers will always discount the reasons for speaking, or tell you it's not worth the trouble this time.

Speak up anyway.

Thank you, Wanda, for giving me a little boost of courage and validation today.
