By Ling Ling

There is a cost to speaking up.   History has shown, time and again, that speaking up can be life threatening. Iconic heroes, such as Gandhi, Mandela, Frida Kahlo, Malala and many others, shouted and fought for equality, freedom, justice, the truth and suffered for their cause. It requires courage, conviction and emotional strength to give a voice to causes that matter.   We keep silent because the dominant culture may punish in order to remain in power.
