"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27 (NIV, The Bible)
The world is a filthy, negative and unfair place. Not that the world is at fault, but human beings have run our society into the ground and based our most important values on the superficial: power, money and appearance. To achieve these successes, the mentality is to step on top of others, discriminate and marginalize. Women and children have been the silenced, oppressed, devalued and neglected since society came into being, all because we have an ability to accept the things we cannot change.
Something is different, a new wind is blowing. Now, there is a movement where we can stand up as women to protect our children. We can "change" the things that we have accepted in quiet submission since the beginning of time.
My vision is to help women and children (widows and orphans) find their significance, to live an abundant life unpolluted by the negative voices of this world. I believe that with a goal, an unwavering faith and unity, nothing is impossible. We can change the world!
A vision may begin with one person. Bringing positive change flowing deep into the veins of our society takes a mob. As a Voices of Our Correspondent, I can be an agent of change, a voice that unites hearts to shake the grounds of this world and expose the harsh realities. And after all crumbles, only the foundation stands, and that is LOVE. Both an immature writer and untrained, running on passion will only get my vision so far. With Voices of Our Correspondent, I can truly become that voice of change with a clear and strong message spoken to the right audience. Being a Voices of Our Correspondent gives me the opportunity to know, understand and connect to women around the world, we can share our lives together.
This is how I picture the future: From the muddy soil, against all adversities can a pure white lily, a rare gem blossom and shine. One by one we rise up and let the whole world see, all of different colours and shapes. Together brilliant flowers lights up the planet. No one can see the dirt where they came from underneath.
