So you may or may not have heard of the ‘One Billion Rising’
Campaign commemorating globally on 14th February 2013. This is an opportunity for individuals across the world to stand up against violence towards women.
A part of me feels such disgust that crimes like these are consider the norm in our society today, yet a bigger more part of me is arising with hope, respect and admiration that their are people in this world that aren’t okay living with these atrocities any longer; accepting a world where crimes against women are allowed will not be tolerated anymore; taking a stand, taking action, showing our loyalty to our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends is the only world that we wish to live in. I choose to be part of the change makers, I am rising!
Margaret Mead was straight on when she said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Now just think if we could make that into a rather large global network of socially aware citizens, maybe changing this world wouldn’t seem like such an impossible task after all….
