Littlest Voices

By Colleen Briggs

All over the world, they peer from the shadows of deconstructed realities…

From the rice fields of Vietnam, laboring under a relentless sun.
From the slums of Kenya, neglected and starving .
From the mountains of Nepal, sold into slavery.
From the countryside of Zimbabwe, oppressed by the whims of a corrupt dictator.

And from countless other hidden cracks: 153 million orphans.

Vulnerable to disease, abuse, neglect, death.

The littlest voices among us… forgotten and powerless.

Unless you and I listen.
