Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth.
To say nothing is saying something. You must denounce things you are against or one might believe that you support things you really do not.
It can be difficult to speak truth to power. Circumstances, however, have made doing so increasingly necessary.
They want us to be afraid. They want us to be afraid of leaving our homes. They want us to barricade our doors and hide our children. Their aim is to make us fear life itself! They want us to hate. They want us to hate 'the other'. They want us to practice aggression and perfect antagonism. Their aim is to divide us all! They want us to be inhuman. They want us to throw out our kindness. They want us to bury our love and burn our hope. Their aim is to take all our light! They think their bricked walls will separate us. They think their damned bombs will defeat us. They are so ignorant they don’t understand that my soul and your soul are old friends. They are so ignorant they don’t understand that when they cut you I bleed. They are so ignorant they don’t understand that we will never be afraid, we will never hate and we will never be silent for life is ours!
Joyfully we undertake our daily work.
If there is money for elections, there should be money for our communities. Raise money for our country like how you hustle to raise money for your campaign.
I now know that surrendering, allowing, and “BE-ing” is far more productive than grasping for control. I don't know why one child is born with autism and another isn't, or why some children have to fight cancer and some don't. I have lived long enough to know that life is not fair, never will be fair, and we shouldn’t expect it to be.
There are people that are to champion the campaign and advocacy against the cycle of ungodliness and injustice in every nation.
All advocacy is, at its core, an exercise in empathy.
I'm not running from the left; I'm running from the bottom. I'm running in fierce advocacy for working-class New Yorkers.
Mark Zuckerberg has started an advocacy group for immigration reform.
The option of solicitor advocacy came on the scene a bit too late for me.
