Listen to the Voice from the Outside, C2, Judia

Listen to the Voice from the Outside

When it comes to my title: “Listen to the Voice from the Outside”. What does the word “Voice” mean? Before I tell you more, I want to ask everyone a few questions.

  1. Do you feel happy now?
  2. Are you satisfied with your current living?

Maybe your answer is yes, or maybe no. People are craving. When they don’t feel satisfaction, they will desire for more; which may be good, because that’s how we become better.

However, on the other side of the world, some people are living in such a way that we can hardly imagine.

Let’s watch this video, to show you what it is like:

In this video, we can see the wars caused tens of millions of people displaced from their home. Because of war, most of the people, or refugees, lose what they have. Only a few people can escape, like fleeing the country. But, where can they go? How about the young refugees? They may be homeless, uneducated, and can’t have a regular meal. Among a huge number of them, only a few are lucky to live, go to school to study. However, they still live in fear, and has a little hope in the future.

Ishmael Beah, an Africa child soldier. When he was twelve years old, he went to Matruh and join a performance with his friends. He thought it was going to be quick, so he didn’t tell his parents. Unexpectedly, they met rebels when upon arrival. In order to survive, they have to escape the village.

Because there were lots of rebels, Self-Defense attacked as if they were one of them. Luckily, they were able to escape from the Self-Defense, and had safety sheltered by local residents.

However, this wasn’t a long-term solution. No parents accompany, just a group of adolescents with no money. Roamed in the fall of the chaotic country, they escaped and fled, and finally, got to Ishmael for survival.

Though he survived, he still got captured by government, and was forced to train for military. He was only 13 years old, when he fought for Self-Defense as a child soldier.

I believe it’s hard be in a life like this, lived closed to a war, and was captured by the government for military service.

When we live happily, it hard to imagine what is it like outside. Maybe sometimes, we have to pause for a little while, take our footsteps to the outside world, and maybe provide some care to the people who need our help, listen the voice from the outside, perhaps, at this moment, they need our help.

The world is really big outside. As Armstrong once said, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” When you really step out, maybe you’ll see the things that will make you surprised, or when you really listen their voice, maybe you can learn from them how to cherish everyone from your surroundings.

Listen to the voice from the outside. Once from being taken care to now taking care of the other people, including me; now, I believe we have the power to help others, we only need to devote a little effort and take some action, and we will make a great difference.

Now, I want to ask everyone again.

  1. Do you feel happy now?
  2. Are you satisfied with your current living?

I believe the answer is in your mind. If you are, you then have the power to help others to have a better life.
