“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil; God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
Looking back in life the times I felt compelled to say something, and didn’t, haunt me the most. Ignoring that voice inside you that says, “do it, now,” decreases your sensitivity to it. Just like with anything, using your voice takes practice. It’s a skill. Translating those inner feelings into words and then voicing them with kindness and class. Tact and fact, like some people say. You start small and the confidence grows and grows until you have no choice but to speak. Silencing that inner voice brings feelings of defeat. Using it sets you free. And since freedom is what we’re all fighting for here, we all know what we need to do. If you are silent you are absolutely saying something, so you might as well go ahead say it.
