The deciding Factor For the voice of Freedom

The deciding factor for my wanting to be a candidate for the journalism program is the voice of freedom, by using my voice and being a witness for my life and also the lives of others the voice of freedom is possible for liberation. I receive calls from people from all walks of life from other countries asking for help and I respond to every call. For our own liberation and the liberation of others we must use our voice and I with all good intention and also willing to take the risks involved will use my voice for that reason.
What we do not condemn we condone and the issues that face all of us today are now being common practice. Crime is common now, human rights violations and civil rights violation are now mainstream. Corruption is spoken of in all circles
. To defeat these issues and many others the truth must be spoken and the point of liberation can be addressed when we use our voices to challenge these issues . The voice for and of freedom.

When the truth is silent justice and freedom are denied, when the truth is spoken before the unjust , justice and freedom are slaughtered, we must use our voices to stop the slaughter. We can use our words to influence and inform others so there is participation on these matters.
The bonds and shackles of ignorance are then cut through and enlightenment follows. Knowledge is power by informing others and being informed we have the power to do something and have an effect on the world community. When I use my words I create possibilities Those possibilities can affect the world community
I thrive on the world pulse site and would love to use this for the above mention reasons.
I have been writing for years and and this has had a positive and powerful effect in the lives of many people.
It is paramount we inform others and also keep ourselves informed to defeat the lies and untruths that keep people in a prison of fear and ignorance. Being a voice for freedom is the deciding factor for me and the risks I take are more than necessary so justice and freedom are the mainstream issues and the common factor rather than the opposite. This leads to Liberation.
To further add to this trend of thought, I feel it is important to inform, encourage and inspire. if any of us think of the opposite of freedom or point of liberation, maybe we can compare ourselves to water which runs free in rivers and streams and brooks. it has its freedom in the ocean where it freely splashes on the shores all over and continues its movement. we are the same until that movment is blocked somehow and we are no longer free the point of liberation has been denied then. it is the same when we take water or anything and confine it, such as in a glass or any block it such as a dam, things well up and can spill over . people do the same we well up in our feelings and when our freedom is denied we spill over in different ways and then the protest begins and actions to support that movment.
The flow must continue and there then is constant liberation

Great piece Diane. We must use our voices to stop the slaughter of justice, dignity and freedom because if these values are done away with, what will we have left. Great post.

Good post

Dear Diane,
This is a great post. I would've liked to hear more about concrete examples of how you desire to achieve peace, liberation, and justice. Your post was rather short, and it left me wanting to hear more! Your voice is beautiful - let it come through.

Keep up the good work and that inspiring passion of yours!

Thank You

Hello it is 1030 pm monday here. I am glad you could sense what I care about . I never seem to realize that others will see things that I just live everyday. its like a rock does it know it is a rock. but people sit on boulders walk on them and know what the rock is. The same with a tree or anything that has a purpose it is just being what it is and then someone notices this.
something as small as a seed is behind everything , think about a tine seed where all food, and life comes from trees it all comes from a tiny seed. we are all like seeds where ideas grow and we never know what those ideas do for others, we seem to find out en/route

The flow of freedom

Hi Diana,

I could image your voice in my head reading through the post. Freedom should not be blocked in anyway but it does get blocked but until it does, voices like your will keep us going.
