To all who have lost their lives in search of a better one.
To those still unidentified in warehouse mass graves.
To the undocumented living a half life for survival.
To the immigrants living in the margins of society.
All because they didn't win the birth lottery of privilege either here or there.
It is important to use your voice no matter how small you think it is. I am very thankful to our friends Jeff and Kay from Lightheart Danceart for reminding me that I have a voice and should use it.
Back in 2017 Jeff suggested a collaboration on the border of our City with Mexico. I had long retreated into the world of beauty. My views had not changed but my faith in humanity as a whole had been dashed away for many years. Lightheart's collaboration was a beautiful concept of bringing our friends in the dance world to use their voices for a good cause. This was something I could get on board with. To put our voices together gave me the boost I needed to hear my own voice again if only for a moment.
