The Danger of Silence

"We spend so much time listening to the things people are saying that we rarely pay attention to the things they don't. Silence is the residue of fear" - A short, powerful piece from the heart, about finding the courage to speak up against ignorance and injustice. Clint Smith is a poet and educator whose work blends art and activism.
"So this year, instead of giving something up, I will live every day as if there were a microphone tucked under my tongue, a stage on the underside of my inhibition. Because who has to have a soapbox when all you've ever needed is your voice?"
