Sabrina Vourvoulias has posted a beautiful reflection on Silence and Voice, considering her own experiences in the silence that comes with being "off the grid" with the silences that imposed on the voices we do not wish to hear. This line from Sabrina's essay is sticking with me today: "Turns out there is a difference between a silence elected and one exacted." Much as I cherish the silences that I choose, the few silences that are imposed on me do chafe -- how raw must such silence rub those who have no place to be heard?
What voices crying in the wilderness am I ignoring?
