The power of words.
Updated: Mar 14
Saying things without thinking about the consequences can be deadly.
"Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can do me no harm." Well, that's a lie!
“I have seen the damage that careless words can do, first hand.”
I've purposed in my heart to speak up whenever there is injustice.
Whether its workplace gossip, cyber bullying, body shaming, racial, social and domestic violence, I will not be silent. Activism against injustice of all kinds range from poetry, music and protests, to visual art. The avenues are limitless.
Open dialogue starts when either parties decide to listen objectively.
I have found that it is better to listen.
