Reflections on the
Coming Election

 
Detroit, Michigan  Siena Literacy Center in Detroit offers the following reflection on the coming national elections.

Each voice matters in this election of 2016.
Not all voices will be heard...
if they do not feel they count or matter.
Silence leaves an empty gap
a hole so big that
the divide becomes a canyon...
and no one will win ... not in the end....
because we have not heard from
LaShon and John, Ibou, and Mariama.
