“Those who have a voice must speak for those who are voiceless” Bishop Oscar Romero
This month we are focusing on the voice and ears of a leader. Simultaneously, we are in the final stretch of what feels like the longest Presidential campaign of our lifetime. The good news is, it’s almost over. The even better news is, we get to use our Voice to cast our vote. According to the NY Times, in an article written October 31st, over 22 million people have already used their voice and cast their vote in the Presidential election this year. That means an more than 324 million American citizens still have the opportunity today, to do the same today.
As a women, I am reminded that using my Voice to vote for my leadership is a right my grandmother did not have and decades of women before that. I’m also reminded that in so many countries across the world, there is not a right to use their voice to cast their vote. In a world where some have more than others, in this country, we all get one vote. Our ballot is our voice and it is the great equalizer. It is available to all who choose to use it. That is worth celebrating no matter who wins the election or whatever side of the isle you choose to position yourself.
