Never Be Silent Whenever Human Beings Endure Suffering and Humiliation

Never Be Silent Whenever Human Beings Endure Suffering & Humiliation

Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation.  
We must always take sides.  
Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.  
Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."

~Elie Wiesel, Political Activist and Professor



Wake Up to Live is about awareness in every aspect.  Waking up to live life is about questioning the social norms and the things that feel uncomfortable to talk about.  Wake Up to Live is about becoming awake of our biases, prejudices, and injustices. Waking up to live life is about waking up from unconsciousness to see what is really true.  Although waking up to live life with awareness and clarity may be difficult to do because now we must begin to make the hard choices, we must strive to Wake Up to Live and be responsible for our actions and the actions of others.  We are in this life together!
