There is nothing more mystical than the voice raised in free expression. Now, more than at any time in my life, I feel the importance of this. How it Thrills Us, Rainer Marie Rilke's poem speaks of the 'cry' , "any cry that was always there". Today, there are many, many cries around us, always there. Only some are human.
Where are we?
- Libby Larsen, 1990
