Current Mood: determined
Current Song: Blue Arrow Suite from the musical Amelie

I know my heart
is speaking with a murmur
making the sound that only I can hear
All I can manage is a whisper
of this heartbeat trapped inside
Here in this place
grant me the grace
to be amplified

- selected lyrics from Blue Arrow Suite from the musical Amélie by Daniel Messé, Nathan Tysen, and Craig Lucas, based on the film written by Guillaume Laurant and Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Listen to the song.

May every voice, every call for help, every glorious song be amplified!

I echo that. May those with the strength to speak also use their voices to help amplify, encourage, and support others.

Thanks for sharing these words–perhaps they will reach out and amplify another's voice!
