Thank for posting this and I was moved and grateful that you took part in the Portsmouth vigil. I believe it was Martin Luther King Jn who said “Our lives begin to end if we stay silent about things that matter”; so thank you for speaking out ‘on things that matter’. More and more I feel personally this is part of what’s included in the speech precepts, and not speaking the truth on things that matter is an ethical issue…..
