Creativity Challenge 10
The Challenge here is to use your creative talent to bring light into the current distress in the world around you, in whatever form that talent takes. Please remember that we are reaching out to a world that is facing upheaval and possibly a great number of changes. Let us reach out to that world and bring it the lessons we have learned by becoming artists and writers. You may use images, photos, music, poetry, prose, short story fiction, personal essay, or whatever suits you best. I will post one word a day, adding a few of my own thoughts about the word. The rest is up to you. You may post as many times as you like, and may use old or new pieces, as you choose. When you have finished creating your post, return here and leave the URL in the comments section below. Then post it to whatever social media you are involved with. If you are not connected to some form of social media, consider joining one now. If not, say so when you post, and I will attempt to post it on mine, which is Facebook.
Word for Today
That which gives us the ability to speak. To say what we hold dear and is of value to us. The means to express our thoughts and beliefs. We write because we have a desire to be heard. But, what of those who can not speak? Those who live in silence because they have no voice? Or those who have silenced themselves because they have no words, or have been silenced by suppression? Which voices do you hear, or pay attention to? Just for today, speak for those who have no voice, who have no means of expressing their fear, let alone their distress. Raise your voice on behalf of those who can not do the same.
This is an older piece, but speaks to the issues at hand.
Hi Elizabeth, Hank is here

Sigh. Two days of grieving. Here in Canada, Trudeau just announced approval of two pipelines. He campaigned on clean energy. Once in power, one finds power is really in the hands of the multinational corporations. So we’re sunk. However marches and demonstrations are getting ready to roll. Standing Rock Canadian style.
