Be A Part of New Column Called “Be Heard”

Be Heard

In seeing the brilliant play Embodi(ED) written and performed by fifteen members of the advocacy group Girl Be Heard, I decided I wanted to start a column where anyone could be heard. In the theatrical troupe “Girl Be Heard” their ages range from 12 to 21 and they use theater to empower, while exploring their own challenging circumstances. They are the bravest women I know…girls really who tell their tales before the chapters get too long. They are letting their demons be heard, they are letting their voices speak.

The night I saw the play, I told two of the girls my idea and they were thrilled to be able to participate.

It is my hope these stories let you know you are not alone, that there is power and release in words and you have a place to come to share with others.

You can write me about any subject and as long as it is printable and I will publish your story, your truths, your gift to others.

Send all submissions to Please put in the subject line “Be Heard” so you don’t get lost.

Tomorrow, you will find what I hope will be the first of many stories.
