Let Us Listen

An adult stoops down so that a child can whisper in her ear.

Let us listen deeply to what is on our hearts,
Let us listen to what our fears are;
Let us listen to the young children,
Let us listen to the teens,
Let us listen to the elders.
Let us listen when the world is sick.
Let us listen.
Note: "When the world is sick" is a song by IfNotNow, a movement led by young Jews to transform the American Jewish community’s support for the occupation into a call for freedom and dignity for all.
