Blog Action Day #BAD15 is here and you are invited to join us and #RaiseYourVoice.
Today is the day you must speak out.
Let it be the start of many such days.
There is too much injustice
Too much hate
Too much poverty
Too much division
Too much censorship…
There are many causes
That need our attention
We cannot afford to keep silent
That would be a grave injustice:
To the victims of war, hate and violence
To women who suffer untold misery
To children who face all manner of abuse
To those who suffer from incurable diseases
To those who have no recourse
To those who have no one to speak for them
To those driven to suicide….
Raise your voice today
Add it to the other voices
Speak out on Blog Action Day
And every day after that.
Remember these words? You have to #RaiseYourVoice !
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me
– MARTIN NIEMÖLLER
Here’s another cause you can raise your voice for.
Soup For Syria
Interlink Publishing, a Massachusetts-based independent publishing house, has collaborated with bestselling cookbook author, photographer, and food writer Barbara Abdeni Massaad (Man’oushe: Inside the Lebanese Street Corner Bakery)—together with nearly 80 acclaimed chefs—on a humanitarian cookbook project whose profits will be donated to the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR to provide urgently needed food relief for Syrian refugees. Check out the book here. Get involved. Buy the book, share on social media and get the word out to as many people as you can.
