Good evening Headmaster special guests parents and students MORE VOICES SHOULD BE RAISED IN PROTEST Normal talking Ladies and gentlemen the world is full of apathy full of egocentricity and selfishness Full of indifference passiveness and insensitivity We are happy to sit back and watch horrific things happen right in front of our eyes and we take no action Look at the tidal wave in New Guinea the massacres in Kosovo It does not matter how terrible things are if we are not personally affected then we do not worry or bother finding solutions There are many things happening around the world which should from a humanitarian perspective concern all Australians Some of these events will cause immense hardship theyll create lifelong disabilities to the victims and they will horrify the sensibilities of modern society but what do we do Nothing Pick up pace be serious be angry get increasingly loud What do we do when children are murdered in the name of invasion What do we do when women are raped during war What do we do when people are imprisoned and tortured for what they believe in What do we do when animals are made extinct when forests are destroyed when the seas become the dumping grounds for toxic wastes when the air we breathe becomes thick with the noxious fumes of industry pause change voice to deep and serious It seems that the answer in our increasingly civilized society pause is nothing pause Be encouraging Ladies and gentlemen more voices should be raised in protest The need has never been so great We must look at the global picture not a local one Lone voices will remain silent and make very little difference However our combined voices all the concerned citizens shouting as one can make a difference Our massed voices can bring about change if only we make the effort to raise them
