Speaking up for those who can't speak up for themselves... That's been on my heart as of late. Maybe because I feel like I was one of them. My parents divorced when I was very young and I was a typical "latch key" kid growing up. It was my teachers, coaches, and mentors that looked out for me during those formative years. Some of them simply refused to let me slip through the cracks of the system, by speaking up for me at times when I couldn't speak up for myself. Now that I'm in this position of influence, Tony the man can speak up for Tony the kid whenever he or she crosses my path. Take a look around this week. Who do you see your reflection in? Who needs a voice? Speak up for them when needed, but more importantly, help them find their voice.
