Speak up

I know that my posts are usually kind of funny and random, but violence and abuse has been a topic that I’ve taken considerable interest in lately.  As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, here is an extraordinary speech by Leslie Morgan Steiner.  I love her message.

“violence thrives in silence”

So many times we stand silent when we see or experience violence. Not just physical violence but also psychological violence. It spreads to racism and bigotry and overall hate. This cannot go on. I vow to speak the next time I see violence. It may not be my place, but standing silent is endorsing and I cannot live with that. Speak up.  Enjoy the speech.
