Beginning to speak

January 15, 2010

Audre Lorde has been my traveling companion in this journey; her courage and wisdom challenges and sustains me to work for justice. When I am tempted to stay silent, I hear her words:   “When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.” (1978, The Black Unicorn)
