#SOL18: A Ripple
When do you speak up? When do you take action? When have you “had enough”?
I have a question.
I see an injustice.
Do I remain quiet?
Do I speak up?
What if my question is not accepted?
What if . . .
What is the worst that can happen?
I love this poem that Vicki Vinton posted on Twitter (as well as a new source for poetry)! It can apply to so many situations in life.
Inaction . . .
Inertia . . .
No longer acceptable . . .
What is the tipping point?
Do no harm?
What will be the cost of speech?
What will be the cost of inaction?
“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water,
the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.” Dalai Lama
“This is what kindness does, Ms.Albert said. Each little thing we do goes out, like a ripple, into the world.” Jacqueline Woodson
What will your “ripple” be?
