Speak the truth
Even when you are scared.
Even when you know there will be fall out
Even when you know you will lose a friend
Even when you stand alone
Even when you hurt with the effort
Even when you fear the consequences
Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes.
In The Tenth Circle Jodi Picoult says a powerful thing:
"Just because you didn't speak the facts out loud didn't erase their existance. Silence was just a quieter way to lie"
When we stay silent, we are giving permission for wrong things to be done. When we stay silent, we hand our power to another person. When we stay silent, we cannot possibly evoke change.
Speak the truth.
