Over to Vicky:
Stand Up For What's Right!
Sometimes it is hard to do the right thing
Give a voice to others, an open ear to those in need
Just think about the helpless, the people in distress
Discrimination, Racism, Bullying amongst the rest
Our world holds so much beauty, everywhere we turn
Let's start listening to others, there is so much we can learn
Life is truly precious, don't let it pass you by, time falls away before you in a blink of an eye
So let's make our time upon this globe a footprint in the sand
Stand up to the perpetrators, that darken this glorious land
Be the voice of others, who have no strength to speak, empower others' motives, to stop praying on the weak
Let's promote humanity, and voice a peaceful fight
Let us all move forward together and Stand up for what's right
Thank you so much to Vicky for sharing her piece, highlighting the importance of standing up for what's right, even though it can be so hard to do.
