I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world. ~Mother Teresa (Agnes Gonxha Bojar
I take a community as a group of people situated in one place. People, who could share together, live together and help one another in every sector of life. In the same way, they can at least solve one another's problems, issues and shortcomings.
In my community, there exist several challenges. In the same case, some barriers make it hard to create change. The most challenge faced by young women and girls is the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). This has existed ever since, and unfortunately no one has succeeded to outdo. Some others include wife inheritance in other communities, gender inequality and assault of women as a way of discipline according to others.
As much as these practices can be solved, others may be difficult to be dealt with. Just may be! That means, not impossible. Because I do not believe in impossibility, anything is possible only if we believe. Some barriers may include; culture, traditions, ignorance, lack of education, insufficient information and knowledge to enlighten the practitioners.
Well, anyone may wonder how I desire to resolve this. Though it doesn't seem easy, my intention therefore is to connect with the affected crowd. However, you may ask. How, when, where, with whom…
Yes, these questions happen all the time. Nonetheless, media would do. I hope to reach, teach and keep them informed. Well, Nelson Henderson said, “The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit." That is my aspiration.
Currently I run a Web site with a friend. Actually the Web site started up as a blog. From this, I dedicate my writings to those people who think they are alone, those whose hope deteriorates little by little but fast. Those people who never cease to cry because of hurt and pain. Some people and especially women at times feel lonely. With no one to talk to, to at least release their pain and share what hurts them. I know this part. Sometimes, you may be in a crowd but feel lonely and empty inside. I know how it is, have been there.
With the rising voices, the community of pulse wire gives me an opportunity to learn about other women. How they live, their stories, issues, problems, and happiness. Moreover, these give me a great chance to get opinions; advices from other experienced women who have been through this journey.
By so doing I will be able to shout out the same voice to those in my community. Let them know the consequences of practicing what they practice. The risk of acquiring AIDS by way of wife inheritance and female circumcision. Because you realize that during circumcision, hygiene is least of their concern. Nevertheless, wife beating and assault remains in the dark secrets of night. No one dares to listen and hear women. They cry at night but deliver fake smiles during the day. How sad. However truly, it happens.
