February 20th! 1000 Voices with 1 Voice Speak Up for Compassion!

Be A Part Of A Movement-1000Speak

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. ~Henry Ford


1000 Voices coming together, as 1 voice to speak for compassion! February 20th, 1,000 bloggers (if not more at the rate at which it’s growing) will be flooding the blogosphere with their take on Compassion. Started by Yvonne Spence and Lizzi Rogers!

I’m Nigerian and almost everyday I ask God please I don’t want to turn on the news and hear that there was another boko haram attack. I’ve never done anything about it except the occasional tweeting of #bringbackourgirls. I’m helpless… I feel helpless… there’s nothing I can do to ease the pain of the ones who have lost their homes and their loved ones…but now there’s something I can do… I can write and maybe somewhere, someday those directly affected will know that someone out there cries with them too…

So February 20th, I will join the 1,000 Voices and speak for compassion for my country.

Want to be part of this great movement:

  1. Joy, this is a brilliant share of #1000Speak. I so, SO understand your reasons for not wanting to hear bad news on the radio – that’s really where all this came from! And the Margaret Meade quote you used is PERFECT! That’s it PRECISELY, and I hope very much that this is the start (or part) of something HUGE, which will change the world for the better.

    Thank you for this post 🙂

    1. Thank you Lizzi for “running” with the vision and including us in it. Now I don’t have to disassociate myself from what’s happening as if it does not concern me. For once I will allow myself to feel the pain of those who have suffered because of this. I will never know how it hurts, I don’t wear their shoes but I can stand with them feel their pain through writing. I really hope too that this will change the world especially my own world 🙂 Thanks for the kind words Lizzi!
