To all brave persons who have duly taken up the mantle to have more compassionate to help the standard of living .. I salute you !. am grateful to you all for unleashing the inner leadership to get involve...

My heart get sadden anytime i realize the recent happenings of polical issues,the quest for power, poverty, destruction, embezzlement and riots.... however, i get enough confidence and my spirit quickens when i raise my eye brows and see great leaders taking charge. let us arise today and let us ask ourselves the right questions. are we taking charge? are we improving the standard of living ? are we solving societal issues? are we being the voice to the voiceless? are we acting democratic?... in a minute this rings a bell of the statement:when change becomes necessary,sacrifice is needed. there is a call for patriotic young men and women to stand for what is right!. i get surprise when i hear others say they were intimidated, there were no systems,principles and structures put in place.its painful to hear this!!! very painful! it pierces through my shadow and the tears from eyes flow like a fountain. but hey! i remind you today ; you are brave, you can help in one way or the other, you can GET INVOLVE.. for when all hands come on board we can push the truck out of our way. we can remove every obtacles if we combine alll ideas and strategies, we can make the world a better place for that 2years child who is innocent, we can give a voice to those who do not have and we can hold those who cannot take a step because of no support by offering our shoulders...... continue to say you are involved and take the bold can and yess! i say to you you just getting involve

    Thank you Sonia, for the call to start!  No matter where you are, what position you take, or which direction you are going, always starting something new is a challenge.  Intimidation is what all of us face, and believe me, sticking to the promise to do something is another challenge. What you want to do is to set the goal first.  What do you think is the problem?  What do you think you can do to solve the problem?  Then you want to follow through and share the stories with sisters on WP.

    Hi Sonia, I agree with you about "when change becomes necessary, sacrifice is needed." It is hard to be brave and have the courage to speak out, sacrifice our "comfort zone" or safety, but we all need to break the silence, find the strength inside ourselves and inspire other to do so!

    Thank you for said it out loud, sometimes that is all what we need to get started.
