Voice and Visibility Build Capacity

When people don't have voice they often lose hope.

Similarly when people feel invisible they typically don't respond, contribute, or engage.

On the other hand, when you make a few minutes to listen to someone's story, hear their questions, and respond with care, their response is ready and their voice alive.

It's such a simple remedy to situations where hopelessness or disinterest reign.

I want to think more about this as I reach out to the children I teach, colleagues I work with, and family/friends I love.
