OUT FROM SHELL

It happens to me a lot, holding my pen and asking my hand to write down my feelings and my thoughts. But after may attempts I fall to write anything. Thant is because I feel that no one cares of what I write or even because I feel that what I will write can't change anything of the reality. When I signed up in the World Pulse and started to read what other women wrote about their lives and how they stand up for the bad circumstances that surrounding them and how much there are strong, I was completely astonished with them and with that community that gathers them. It mad me feel that I had the opportunity to find a community that I can belong to, interact in it, learn and know new people, feel free to say anything and discuss anything, and to learn how to get strong to change bad circumstances to better ones.

I am living in community that woman are living on the margin side, half human if I can say it. She not allowed to think for herself, and if it happened and thought she can't talk, and if she had the strength to talk all the community put her in the black list and treat her like a freak. She most of time can't walk in the street without having sexual harassment and if she complained, so it was her own fault, why she walked in the street in the first place. Her place is must be at home. Even if she very good educated, she had been educated to get married. I am imagining what those girls and women can gain when they are able to use Web 2.0. They will be able to learn about their rights as a part of the community and as a human being. They will have the chance to speak up and talk about themselves and find who listen and appreciate their experience. They can find out solutions to their problems and get the support that they need. Read other stories and experiences from around the entire world. That is how they will become more effective in their own life and in their community and put her on the first step to stand up for her life and for her humanity.

What a good chance to feel that I not here alone, that there are hundreds of people who will stand beside me when I need their support. I can communicate with hundreds, who can understand what I say, Learn hundreds of experience that tell me that I can be strong and able to do what I want for my community.
