Silence is golden.

Children should be seen and not heard.

 

How times they have changed.

We work to give voices to those on the margins.

The kids, minorities, women.

All deserve a voice we say.

 

But what is a voice without listening ears?

How can we share one another’s tears?

 

We need to learn to listen again.

Really listen.

Hear one another’s voices.

 

Giving voice to others is sacred work.

Work we all need to do.

So let’s learn to listen.
