Nevertheless we persisted.

The original phrase is: “Nevertheless she persisted” and as many of you may know it’s become a very famous feminist cry. However, in my opinion it didn’t sound right the first time I heard it.

I prefer the term “we”. Why, you ask?

Because it shows us, people of privilege or not, that we are unity. Without unity there is no peace, kindness and cooperation.

In these days we have to stand up and raise our voices to persist. To stand for what’s right. Say no to things that bring us down and yes to those that make us stronger.

Right now we need humanity. Instead of becoming one, we point out our differences to each other, but many don’t see that in the end we are all the same. We are human.

The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity – or it will move apart.
