Use your voice

March 7, 2018 - 12:48pm
No one has ever accused me of being quiet. In fact, quite the opposite. I was given extra assignments in grade school to keep me from chatting with my neighbors, have never been afraid to give a speech, was voted most talkative in high school and still today have a hard time shutting up. I figure, I was given a voice, I might as well use it. I've used it to ask questions, teach others, collaborate on ideas, get jobs done, connect with people, celebrate, argue and debate. I've used it to defend myself and speak up for others. I've spoken to crowds of hundreds and one small child. I've chanted at rallies and whispered in the night. I've sung in choirs and hummed melodies to myself. I've spoken beautiful poetry and colorful language that would make a sailor blush. I've tried to wrap my tongue around different languages but never really mastered them. I've been speaking up as often as I can from the time I was able. It's really pretty amazing what just one voice can do. If we've learned anything during the last few months, it's that one voice, backed by courage, can make a difference. One voice, joined by others, can change the world.

Prabu David: Finding the right words

March 7, 2018 - 11:37am
I have come to realize how poorly equipped I am to convey my thoughts in words. I say one thing and it sounds clich'ed. I say something else and wonder if I have said something insensitive. Amidst my uncertainty, I hear some students, staff and faculty, speak precisely, gracefully and effectively about these topics.
