silence is no longer an option
For far too long I've sat in silence.
For far too long I've allowed others to be the voice for the oppressed.
For far too long I was made to believe my voice wasn't needed.
I now know that I was wrong, because I can no longer remain silent.
I speak out to have my voice heard.
I speak out for those that cannot speak.
I speak out to hold our government accountable.
I speak out to keep history from repeating itself.
I speak out because I have hope we can do better, that we will be better, and that things will change.
Silence is no longer an option.
