When Fisher began to write her poem, she thought of the importance of not only what voting meant to herself, but also her family.

It’s the beginning of a new decade, and we still have no equal rights!

There is a way we can act like we know this is true, by remembering what those before us- our ancestors- and great, great grandparents went through!  They fought! They bled and died!  They walked for both you and me!  So now We speak!

No more silence – Voice your vote!

Please don’t forfeit the opportunity to raise your voice.  Vote! And vote Loud!  The world needs to hear your sound!  Although we are all different races, and come from different backgrounds; we are still one in Our voice, and in Our vote.

No more silence – Voice your vote!

I will speak.  And I will speak Loud at the voting polls, always remembering that we all get to speak.  We all have a choice, because we all have a voice.  Our voice is not just the sound of the words that proceed from our mouths; but it is often the sound of actions that proceed from our hearts. Can you hear it? Listen to your heartbeat as you get closer to “18!”  I’m listening to my heartbeat as it gets closer to election day 2020. I’m making sure I’m registered so that nothing will get in the way- of my vote- my Voice!  Come on let’s All be heard!

No more silence – Voice your vote!

It’s evident America is fighting for change!! Will we just stand on the sidelines?  Or will we get in the game?  This, my beautiful people, is our call to fame.  Don’t be ashamed!  Lift Every voice and sing?  No Not Sing; lift Every voice and vote!  Your voice. My voice. His voice. Her voice.

Again, I say silence no more.  Voice your vote and Vote your voice!
