Voice. Finding my voice. Speaking my voice. First words. Today the first child of the next generation of my family line was born. She is the voice of the future. I now join the ranks of the ancestors, those who lead and protect and live on after our own. The voice of the past. The voice of the family. The voice of our heritage. The voice of our people. I take this honor seriously. May I speak words of truth, of wisdom, of love and strength. May she love and remember my voice always.
