This poem was a Freedom of Speech challenge.

To music or not to music?

Now is not the time to be silent
Exercise your right to speak freely

For that dependent, latchkey, smart,
But a baby having a baby child or teen

For that single mom, whose work is never done
Educated, yet been through domestic violence

For that disabled worker, who canít give 110 per cent
But when he could, he did. And still have vivid dreams

For that Veteran, POW, whose braved wars and rumors of wars
Those who came home and those who didnít

For that elderly man or woman who still have something vital
To give, through work or to volunteer, who are often overlooked

For that pet who is your loyal, sometimes whimsical, friend
And protector who loves you unconditionally

For those endangered species whose purpose may not be understood
But is just as important as our earthly purpose

For all others who cannot speak up for themselves
Your voice, your vote, your freedom of speech is needed

Not because the first amendment says so
But because itís good common sense

Thank you for reminding readers what exactly freedom of speech entails. World and local authorities have put such a cap on truth that many are either afraid to voice their views and protect the innocent, or else have deceived themselves into believing that they are exercising freedom of speech. There should be no authority standing between an individual and his/her inner voice!

Wishing you continued wondrous creativity!

With respect and admiration,

Carol Phelan Aebby
