Blogs that whisper…

 

         
   

   
She
writes the words on the page, not knowing that her thoughts; the
insignificant musings of a teenager will resonate so loudly with
generations to come. Her message? "In spite of everything that has happened, I still believe that people are really good at heart." In the midst of hate, Anne Frank wrote her diary.

The
comparisons are hard not to make. The small voice of a teenager
compared with the giant powerful voice of a dictator. The voice of hope
compared to the voice of death. In the end, these voices both made
giant impacts of our history. Which voice do you hear more easily? The
whisper of a child in hiding or the frantic yelling of a murderer?

Which
voices of this era will resonate with our descendents? The putrid vile
of hate from extremists who hate this country and continue to try to
tear it apart? Or will it be the voices of reason, the small voices
that whisper in the wind?

Will we pass on the firefighters who
went back into those towers because people needed to be saved; only to
tragically die themselves? Or will our mantra be "Bush lied, people
died"? Will we be defined by the events of September 11th? Or will that
event be written in our history books as "well-deserved" pay back? Will
our troops be honored or will the message "we support our troops when
they kill each other" be our cry? Will Michael Moore, George Soros,
Howard Dean be revered as American Heroes? Or George W. Bush, Donald
Rumsfield and our men and women sacrificing everything for America be
esteemed? What will our history be? Which voices will persevere?

Which
voices will die? Anne Frank’s voice never died…it continues today.
Her whispers made in an attic drown out the screams of a dictator.
