Stand Up, Ladies!


Sigh...

It's International Women's Day, and bloggers worldwide are asked to append the following logo to their blogs:-

And to provide the following link:-
http://www.internationalwomensday.com

This is a new blog...A new blog that is not private and which I can actually address some serious issues...

For those who have access to my private blog, go ahead and keep abreast there...

We just had International Women's Day, and here I am wandering if I am losing my voice...I wonder what will happen in 20 years time...Will I have a voice? Will we have a voice? Look at how the world is now...The youths are an incorrigible lot, and people are losing faith in us (Hell...I am losing faith in us)...

Do you think we are capable of taking over the future? Do you think we can be custodians of the entire future civilisation? Do we deserve it?And if the youths are deserving, will I still have a voice?I wish there was a channel which can address these concerns...

Sure, many people might argue that BRATs is a good one, but it is only good in helping to reach out to the community:-when time permits, when the powers that be give greenlight and support an endeavour with monetary backup, etc...It's a great and fantastic programme (Non-BRATsters, go ahead and join!), and I am proud to be a part of it, having learned a lot...

But seriously, I want something a little more...I am looking for something which gives me much more than that...One which I can run to if I am in trouble, and who would use their voice to help reach out for the help I need; one which I can run to and tell them my concerns, and who will in turn help me voice them out through the proper channel(s); one which I can run to and just say "hey, I need someone to talk to"...

We need a solitary voice to help empower us all...I'm not trying to shirk my responsibility as an individual, but I think we need a platform for us to share and to grow together...

As a tribute to women worldwide, this is a post to salute all the past, present and future women who will help build a better world, and who, I hope, will continue to use their voice to empower the world, and to keep it running! We've seen enough damage when the world is run by men; it's time to change that!

Stand up ladies! Use your voice!

Oh, and Mum, I love you!...
