Recently, I spent the afternoon with some beautiful souls—young women who shared their life history with me. I’ve seen what a broken system can destroy. But it’s almost always been on the other side of the world, slightly abstract. Rarely has it been easy to relate to someone’s story as possibly your own. But this was different. These were local young women that methodically and personally walked me through their lives from their earliest memories. Describing how their lives were shattered through sexual abuse at an age when most of us were learning to tie our shoes. How do you say, “Life is what you make it” to those young women and the thousands of women (and men) like them? You don’t.

But here’s what you do: listen.

My latest song, Silence Broken, was written after meeting these young women. Because I know that we are only as free as the most bound among us. And as long as voices are silent, we will never know where we are as a species on this planet. We will never know how truly evolved we are—assuming that we’re defining evolution as greater acceptance, understanding and love of our fellow human.

And as long as voices are silent,
we will never know where we are as a species on this planet.

There's a time to try for everything that's possible
There's a time when words we hear will feel brand new
There's a road we could be on that leads to everywhere
In a world that we all know - we were there.

When did someone say to you
The words that made life break in two?
I remember I believed
If you were good, the world would be

You know how your life was stolen
Who would know it could fall so far?
Name the time - The silence broken
That will tell us just where we are.

Stake the claim and find the truths to be self-evident
Or break the chain in two
With what you say

You know when your life was stolen
Who would know it could fall so far?
Name the place. The silence broken
That will tell us just where we are
