Happy International Women’s Day!
Today, I’m waiting on the arrival of a third grandchild (perhaps a second grand-daughter) who’s now two days overdue. With this imminent arrival constantly on my mind, I’ve watched again this video, put out by 1 Million Women, who have transformed John Farnham’s much-loved song, ‘You’re the Voice’ into ‘a powerful anthem from women for climate action and hope’.
What has most moved me in the viewing is the variations on the theme:
- You’re the Voice
- I’m the Voice
- We’re the Voice
… together with the multitude of faces depicting:
- the well-known and the unknown
- the long-lived and the unborn
- racial diversity
Here’s to a world where my grandchildren, both the boy(s) and the girl(s), will raise their voices together in unity, for They’re the Voice!
They’re the Voice, You’re the Voice, We’re the Voice, I’m the Voice!
