Title: We have a dream


Thoughts:

 

I was a little girl when I experienced racism for the first time in my life. Back then I did not understand why people would treat others this way. When I visited my family in South America as a teenager, I experienced it again when a young dark-skinned woman was sent out of a shop right before my eyes. I witnessed the shop assistant saying in Spanish: "Come back when you are better dressed! It made me so angry that I instantly asked the saleswoman to apologize (which she refused). Later I had a conversation with the young woman who had been treated in this bad manner. She told me that she was used to such a kind of behavior in this country and that she had been treated badly on many occasions because of her skin color. That was when my heart started hurting so much that I swore no longer to remain passive. 

I am half South American and half Swiss. I like to think that I am simply a child of this planet called earth. I have experienced racism on my travels. In Switzerland I witnessed a young black man being called a monkey by white men. I saw a young dark South American woman being driven out of a shop because of her traditional clothes that proudly represented her culture. I knew a small child who was afraid of dark-skinned men because it had been taught so by its parents. There are so many other stories on the subject and even in 2020 people are still fighting for their rights in the USA... Rights that should apply equally to all of us. We should all be treated equally before the law and in the society, we are a part of! No matter if your skin is white, brown, yellow, green, or pink or whatever your cultural background is! And yet, a few days ago, utter hell broke loose in the USA because the laws are still not equally applied to everyone - and this injustice also exists in many other places in the world. 

 

BUT 

 

Our generation!

 

We, the young generation!

 

We strive to be different, we want flourishing communities, we require peaceful neighborhoods, we aim for friendships with people from different cultures and age groups, we want a cooperative, peace-loving and creative government, we want to experience positive social changes and feel supported by society in our individual development. We simply want to see compassion, humanity, love, affection, empathy, and creativity in our leaders! As I fondly quote:

 

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Aristotle 

Therefore, I ask my generation and all who are willing to take part in this great worldwide movement: Speak to each other about the many kinds of injustice in this world and help finding solutions! Become creative and invite others to take part in our loving and healing community. To all the children of the world: I will fight for this justice in my own way and as Martin Luther King once said:

 

Quote:

 

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.“ 

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. 

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. 

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. 

I have a dream today! 

 

Let us make this dream come true! 

 

For the entire world and all people! 

 

We have a dream!

My thoughts:

 

There are million people in the world that see a distorted body image of themselves and suffer from an extreme fear of gaining or loosing weight. While these people are trying to become thinner or thicker by not eating or eating more, they are not only losing or gaining an unhealthy amount of weight but slowly killing themselves inside. 

I chose this topic as I believe that every single person has been through or experienced these feelings, including myself. We have all felt

 

insecure about ourselves because of “perfect” images on social media. And we have all posted images of ourselves looking “perfect” on social media. Yet none of us actually feels perfect on the inside. And we shouldn’t be trying to. We should be trying to feel happy and confident with who we are, not who we think we should be. Self-confidence is extremely important: how you see yourself is how everyone else is going to see you. As the saying goes: “Act confident and no one will question you.” If we all believed in ourselves and loved our bodies, no one would question the way we look or dress. There are many ways of changing our feelings of insecurity and self-doubt, and the first step is to understand that no one is perfect; and that, actually, our imperfections make us unique.
