I’m Speechless

I just read the most amazing story on courage…

One woman’s valor to stand for what she believed in…

Went against all odds…

Fought back…

And was left without a job and penniless…

No one to back her up…

But she persisted…

 

It has made me think…

Would I have the same nerve to stand firm…?

Or would I crumble when things get really rough…?

I literally don’t know what I would do in such circumstance…

When I see all the injustice that goes on in our world…

I know without a doubt, I have lived a sheltered and privileged life…

I have never experienced discrimination or hatred…

I don’t know what that feeling is like…

And my heart breaks for those less fortunate…

 

I vow to her and send her my blessings…

She deserves all our respect…

This story has touched my heart…
