Your Voice is Needed


Hey everybody.  My brain is just frozen for lack of topics.  I’m sure there are tons of things TO write about, I just can’t choose a direction.  Part of it is that I had oral surgery about 2 weeks ago along with a dry socket, from which I was recovering.  Piece of cake in all honesty, but didn’t lend much to creativity.  Then I’ve had a bunch of internal things happening which I wouldn’t **mind** writing about except that without an extensive knowledge of my system’s history, wouldn’t make sense to any of you.  A lot of shifts have been taking place – some big, some small.  Then this week I was sick for a couple days.  SO…my writing voice is tapped out right now.  But once again, I have for your entertainment, a video.  You are likely to have already seen it at some point, so if you have, feel free to skip it or view it once more.  As much as the powerful imagery in this video, I also really appreciate the song and its lyrics and the emotions it evokes.  Be sure to pay attention to what the singer is saying.  You have a voice.  Your voice is needed in the world.


If you have any topics you’d like to hear me babble about, please comment or email me. Cheers. ~J8


Edit:  The name of the song (also noted in the comments of the video) is “Read All About It (Pt. III)” – by Emeli Sande.  The lyrics cannot be over complimented, especially as it pertains to trauma survivors, though I don’t know whether that has anything to do with the song.


Let this be my message to you today. “Read All About It” lyrics:


You’ve got the words to change a nation But you’re biting your tongue You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence Afraid you’ll say something wrong If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?

So come on, come on Come on, come on


You’ve got a heart as loud as lions So why let your voice be tamed? Maybe we’re a little different There’s no need to be ashamed You’ve got the light to fight the shadows So stop hiding it away

Come on, come on


I wanna sing, I wanna shout I wanna scream ’til the words dry out So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid They can read all about it Read all about it, oh


At night we’re waking up the neighbours While we sing away the blues Making sure that we’re remembered, yeah Cause we all matter too If the truth has been forbidden Then we’re breaking all the rules

So come on, come on Come on, come on,


Let’s get the TV and the radio To play our tune again It’s ’bout time we got some airplay of our version of events There’s no need to be afraid I will sing with you my friend

Come on, come on


I wanna sing, I wanna shout I wanna scream ’til the words dry out So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid They can read all about it Read all about it, oh


Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people So when did we all get so fearful? Now we’re finally finding our voices So take a chance, come help me sing this

Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people So when did we all get so fearful? And now we’re finally finding our voices Just take a chance, come help me sing this


I wanna sing, I wanna shout I wanna scream ’til the words dry out So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid They can read all about it Read all about it, oh


I wanna sing, I wanna shout I wanna scream ’til the words dry out So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid They can read all about it Read all about it, oh
