In a state that is plagued by obesity, poverty, and pictures of confused children’s eyes in the back seats of vehicles occupied by unconscious, overdosed parents, it is phenomenal to witness God working to combat this epidemic. One Voice is an organization that uses the number “One” to simulate the Voice of One God, but through Him, there are voices of MANY that are holding the lanterns to light the paths in this darkness.
I have had the pleasure of volunteering at One Voice, and I plan on continuing the mission. I have spoken with Debra Curry-Davis, Executive Director, on several occasions, and our visions are intertwined in order to bring peace and prosperity back to the people and their families, friends, and loved ones. One Voice focuses on PEOPLE addicted to substances, but I loathe the term “addict” due to the connotation and the stigma, so I will continue to refer to everyone involved as PEOPLE. I have counseled many people on this topic, and to see the glimmer of hope in one person’s eyes is enough for me. It only takes ONE PERSON to lead a movement. People plagued by substance abuse is one of the most difficult things to endure. Make no mistake about it, it is a family issue…it effects everyone involved, but if everyone understands that it only takes ONE DAY to begin a path of righteousness, that glimmer of hope can be present again. I am a witness! When I think back to a time where nobody locked their doors, nobody had to knock, families were together constantly, laughter cured everything, I don’t know about you, but it seems so long ago. The mission is to bring that feeling back! It takes extremely hard work, diligence, and patients, but it only takes ONE VOICE to make it happen. The Voice of God!
My family and I have and will continue to pray for everyone going through this struggle. I love everything about One Voice and will continue to support its mission as long as I walk this earth. God bless!
