This morning I am preparing to speak and it’s reminded me again how important our voices are to the world.
Parents long for the day when their baby says its first words. Students work through discovering speech and how to use their voice effectively. As adults, we use our voice to love and influence our kids, our jobs, and our sphere of influence.
Voices are important to the world. Think of the voices we’ve lost recently and what a void that leaves. Who will fill the void Steve Jobs voice once occupied? Whose voice will enter our ears the way Michael Jacksons’s or Amy Winehouse’s did?
I often wonder about my own voice. What unique space is my voice intended to fill? How does my voice make a difference in the world?
What about you? How do you use your voice? Can you find the importance in your voice and how you use it?
