I've tried to take some time to disconnect from everything virtual and focus on my practice. It's been a few months since I've posted on Treeleaf, so I come back with an 'new' thought. Catching up on news around the world and very local happenings, I've noticed an increase in negative views on other section of the populations (race, religion, etc.). I was wondering, when is it more wise to give a voice to the voiceless; than to keep oneself silent? When is it appropriate to be an advocate for someone that cannot defend themselves? Just some thoughts that I've had lately....thanks for your time (after such a long silence).
