|Leah Remini Speaks Up|
Today's quote comes straight from the beautiful Leah Remini (of Dancing with the Stars and King of Queens fame).
She posted the MLK quote on Twitter when she plugged HBO's Going Clear.
It came at the right time. As much as you love hearing from me, and wish I would write more, there is always an unseen cost when I do so.
If you watched Going Clear, then you gained access to some of the never-before-seen footage of what happens to people who leave Scientology and/or question it.
It's not much different in WCS.
It takes bravery to speak up. It takes courage. There are a lot of new faces - surprising faces! - speaking up in WCS lately.
We could make our own "Going Clear" documentary at this point, chock full of high up leadership names saying, "Yes, I did this. And I did that. I did it all. And I can't believe I did any of it. It's all true..."
We are all equal: those who have left, those who are speaking out, those who are asking questions and those who are trying to create reforms.
But most importantly: we are all ALIVE. Our lives have not ended. They are just beginning. Think of Leah and that amazing Contemporary routine she did.
Think of my Note last summer, when I mentioned all the wonderful changes that occurred when I finally took off.
Think of your friends who have left or who fight - think of how energized and full of freedom they truly are.
Lives on the courageous paths are always brimming with the promise of new life.
So for those staying silent - it is your choice - but consider your life: is this really the way you want it to end?
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." MLK would know. It's truly food for thought.
Here's to courage,
