I declare that though we have the right to remain silent, we have a duty to speak out against oppression.
I explain to you that there are people who do not have a voice or do not know how to use it.
I can use my voice. You can use yours.
I will listen to those who need to be heard.
I will aid anyone who needs my help, from finding a bathroom to finding medical care.
I realize that many will argue that these small kindnesses are a waste of time and therefore useless.
I explicitly disagree. No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.
