Writing Prompt For
Day XVI of NaNoWriMo:
“Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.” - Leonardo da Vinci.
Do you ever speak up for what you believe in, or speak up on behalf of someone you believe in? And I don’t mean passive, or social activism here. I mean making your voice heard by every one out there, somehow. And then making that voice matter, somehow. I believe that when we speak out, or speak for something, or someone we tend to learn; learn about ourselves, and the world. More often than not we become trailblazers of some sort, inspiring someone out there to take his, or her voice and shout. If enough of us did something like that; something that inspired more voices around us, and if these voices then shouted at the top of their lungs, then that single voice emanating collectively from all us would shake the ground under our feet. Will bring about change. The key being to be able to keep shouting, then.
