I wrote this about a dear friend with an Unheard voice years ago. Today is his birthday, so it is fitting that I share it now. Though he doesn't know where his gifts will lead, I still admire his spirit, his tenacity, and his vision.

No longer Unheard
It's hard to be heard in this world, and even harder when duties, economics, and self-doubt further drown out our sounds.
I created the Unheard voices in the hope that none of our gifts are laid to waste, that through community and support of each other, we will find outlets, and make our voices heard.
In time, I changed the name from the Unheard voices to the Visual Voice, for I no longer wish to be unheard...
