As a part-time blogger, fulltime auntie and a student of everything, I realize it’s almost impossible to navigate from cradle to grave without coming head on with the besetting sin of audacity, bigotry and injustice. I don’t think I can expound enough how tired I am of bigotry and all forms of pigeonholed beliefs.
These sins are better shared. These sins are better highlighted. Raise your voice. Protect your energy. Protect your aura. Protect your sanity. You have the right and the moral imperative to do this. Speak out on the countless injustices that surround us, without fear of retribution. Be candid. Be bold. Be uncensored. Because when you turn a blind eye to this, injustice thrives.
I must say I’m particularly impressed by how the digital revolution makes us see even the injustice happening far from our shores.
But I want to believe that humanity shares a vision of equilibrium. And I also believe the world won’t fall back into balance on its own. We must therefore raise our voice. We must not condole audacity, bigotry and injustice in any form, whether racism, classism, sexism or even “sheer” suppression of voice. The more we muck with these sins, the more we have to dedicate ourselves to unmucking.
Speak out on injustice because justice is something that is pivotal to our being. Speak out.
My pillar virtues are justice, grit and tenacity. I continue to envision a world that is just and balanced and harmonious; a world devoid of all stigma, including those related to mental health.
But where did the rain start beating us? Let’s go back to the drawing board, let’s make another blueprint, let’s do a thing, two or three, let’s create a safe haven, let’s make the world a better place!
A few tips on how to fight injustice:
- Set an example. (Make changes in your own life).
- Speak out. (This could be by a simple blog like I’m doing or by posting on social media etc).
- Exercise your right to vote.
- Donate to a course in which you believe.
Power to you!
