"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Martin Luther King
The gang rape victim from Delhi passed away. I can't get her off my mind. Though I'm hours from there, protests have erupted throughout the country. I don't know what it takes for change to occur but I hope that proper action is taken to ensure these types of atrocities stop. Why do women have to accept fear as a part of their lives? This could have happened to anybody.
She told her doctors she had the will to live, to keep fighting. Her spirit has made thousands take this issue seriously. Somewhere in the midst of law, politics, and stark human persistence, maybe there's hope. People are already taking action. I pray that they don't distill the importance of this tragedy with time.
May she rest in peace.
