We read, we write, we speak, we listen, we look. Who notices? So much goes on in the world and we can do nothing but observe. How can we make a difference – even a small difference?
I had a WordPress blog some years ago and I decided to discontinue because I was so busy living life and working that I did not have time to make myself heard by writing my blog. Today I changed that. I came back to WordPress.
I have things I want to say. I want people to hear, read, and understand why I say the things I do.
It bothers me that there is so much injustice in the world. So much poverty. So much illness. So many conflicts. So much grief. I feel frustrated that I have no voice in the world and I cannot make myself heard above everyone else’s voice. I do not want to make myself hoarse by shouting above the voices of my friends, my family, or the rest of the world.
In the calm of my own room I will write. Someone may read my words. They may be ignored.
The important thing is that I have a place where I can shout as loud as I want without uttering a word. I want to travel the road to speak as I wish no matter where it leads.
And someone may notice and make just one change for the better.
