powerful – we have a responsibility, duty, obligation to speak out for those who can’t.

Hello, Elizabeth! That’s a bittersweet quote; it speaks of a huge responsibility but also, incredible kindness, to speak up for those who can’t…to remember those who were lost too soon.
This is a quote I first thought of after hearing about the Boston tragedy: “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” ~Dr. Seuss
Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

Love that Dr. Seuss quote and it’s so true.

I love it. I’ve thought about having to speak for animals and children, but never those who have gone before us. Very eye opening!
