Something great is about to happen.

Something wonderful and powerful has been brewing and it is about to explode.

For the last month, bloggers from all over the globe have been talking and writing and connecting with one another…preparing to flood the Internet with goodness.

1000Speak Map

On February 20, 2015, United Nations World Day of Social Justice, one thousand bloggers will join their voices to speak through their blogs about compassion. I will be one of them.


Read the headlines. Look out your window. Walk down the street. You already know why. I don’t have to list and link the stories here. You already know. Far too many days I see the news and find myself wondering, “What is wrong with people?” We can sit and try to answer that or we can prove that there is so much right with people. It’s out there. Compassion, kindness…it exists.

So join us, won’t you? Help us spread the word. Visit the 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion Facebook page. Sign up to add your blog post to the effort. Ask to join the Facebook group. Use the hashtag #1000Speak to promote this event.

And if you don’t have a blog or aren’t on Facebook or social media? We’ve got you covered, too. The 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion blog offers a platform for non-bloggers, children, and others who want to participate. Contact us to submit your contribution by visiting the blog at and join in.

There is still time…it is never to late to add your voice. It is never too late to speak out for compassion.

Help make all of our voices heard.

Lisa A. Listwa is a self-employed writer with experience in education, publishing, and the martial arts. Believing there was more to life than punching someone else’s time clock and inspired by the words of Henry David Thoreau, she traded her life as a high school educator for a life as a writer and hasn’t looked back. She is mother to one glorious handful of a daughter, wife to the nicest guy on the planet, and reluctant but devoted owner of three Rotten Cats. You can find her adventures and thoughts on living life deliberately here on the blog.

  1. Ugh, I need to look more into this. I’m so behind on other projects that I haven’t even thought about what I want to say. I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to participate, but I’m going to stay updated on it to see how it goes.

    1. I put some info on your blog because I couldn’t find your email at the moment (duh…it’s in my comments). Good news is we’re going to keep on going – next one is slated for March 20th! I think you have a lot coming up, but keep abreast of it. I think it’s something right up your alley.

Conversation is the best part of blogging. I'd love to hear your thoughts...
