Today is World Voice Day. This year the theme is “make your voice count” and we’re called upon to let people know about how important voice is in everyday life. From teachers, to politicians, to medical professionals, to lawyers, to law enforcement officers, to a person hawking fish at the market, our voices are essential to us all. For something the size of a postage stamp, the vocal folds can do some pretty amazing stuff, from pillow talk to filling a concert hall with glorious song.
Today is also a good day to remember to hydrate well—the old adage to pee pale is a good one, especially when we all tend to guzzle coffee and other caffeinated brown drinks by the gallon these days.
Won’t you share your love of voice with someone today? If you’re a twitterer, use the hash tag #worldvoiceday to share the love.
