One voice?

One voice! That sounds like a really sensible rallying cry.

Yes, we need to be clear about what we stand for and what motivates us to speak. But just one voice?

Actually, we have many voices, depending on who we are speaking with and why. We are not monotone and our vocabulary shifts, expressing everything from kindness to correction.

I do believe it’s important for us to find our own distinctive voice and use it well. Complementing others in seeking to make a positive difference where we are. But let’s not restrict our dynamic range or lose our colour.

We need vibrant, authentic voices, that can speak truth with compassion and candour.

That’s what really gets heard.
