One Voice

Once voice can make a difference and I am not going to mention the unmentionables (which were later reported to be lies) for example: One vote gave Adolf Hitler leadership of the Nazi Party , which was later debuned in Snopes from Dear Abby.

Barry Manilow wrote the song, ‘One Voice‘ which gives a better description.  Here is the first stanza plus a little extra:

Just One Voice,
Singing in the darkness,
All it takes is One Voice,
Singing so they hear what’s on your mind,
And when you look around you’ll find
There’s more than
One Voice,

Singing in the darkness,
Joining with your One Voice,…

This passages can say many things, or can be used in many circumstances.

It’s about standing up for yourself, for others and for making a difference. It is also about believing.

When you lose because someone rigs the system in their favor illegally you have to get mad, and to do what Elle Woods said in Legally Blonde 2, Speak up. That one voice speaking up in the darkness, soon becomes many voices in the light. If that never happens how do you never whether or not you can win.  That person risked the law by breaking it, if you don’t take a risk by doing something but by following the law, you’ll never know if you can win. Sometimes it is done by voting, sometimes it done by speaking up. If you don’t do anything you will always lose.

Please enjoy Barry Manilow singing One Voice
