I want to live in a World without fear,
Fear of being attacked, ridiculed, or demeaned,
I want to live without the fear of feeling unworthy or small because of my views and beliefs.
I want to live amongst people of different ethnic minorities and embrace our differences,
I want to learn from them and I want to teach them,
I want to see, hear and feel them as my equal,
I want to integrate.
I want to smile when I see two people in love
No matter what their sexual preference… Love is love, who am I to question, judge or preach?
I want to find peaceful resolution in a conflicted World,
I want to support those innocent soles trapped in countries, afraid and desperate, prepared to do whatever they must to survive and protect their loved ones.
I want to support those people brave enough to stand up to dictators and extremists,
I want to stop feeling powerless that I can’t do anything to help.
I want to support the Earth to renew and heal itself
I want to stop polluting Mother Earth in my own small way.
I want to take responsibility for making the World a better place,
And when I feel overwhelmed by the enormity of all that responsibility…
I want to remember that I have a voice and I have a right to express it, because I live in a democracy which allows me to speak as a woman, to have an opinion.
This is a privilege I feel grateful for every day when I listen to the News.
I want young women to stand up for what they believe in… It’s your right, it’s what our Mothers, Grandmothers, Great Grandmothers and many other strong, powerful women fought for not so very long ago.
NO VOTE MEANS NO VOICE
