– the combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce chords having a pleasing effect.
Harmony. This is not just about music, or anything. At some point, this word could define us, our voice, and people’s joint voices to produce a better world.
We all know that slavery has been part of our world’s history, where some people are treated as if they weren’t, and they cannot speak and do whatever they wanted to do. All their lives, they suffered from their deafening silence as they are told to shut up and not to speak.
Today, the proclamation of democracy to most countries has been evident and step by step, we’re escaping the idea of “slavery” and “deafening silence”. The system has given people the opportunity to speak and voice out their opinions. Somehow, people can now expect for a better change as compared to our history, because they are allowed to open their mouth and speak, making an impact to this society… or maybe not.
The truth is, yes, we are allowed to speak and state our opinions and beliefs. We have the right to oppose or support our government, or anything. But the main question is, Do they hear us?
To suggest, is to expect an improvement.
To oppose, is to expect an explanation.
To support, is to expect gratitude.
To speak, is to expect an action.
But how can we expect all of these if in the first place, we aren’t heard at all?
They have given us the privilege to speak, but not the privilege to be heard.
Wait. Let me ask you… Why do you think they can’t hear us?
Because our opinion is worthless? No.
Because they are trying to ignore us? No.
It is because we are not loud enough.
We are not loud enough because only few are brave enough to speak. Only few are wise enough to use their privilege and make an argument. Truth be told, most of us are afraid to voice out our opinions. But think of this, how is the world supposed to know you exist if you’re not going to speak up?
Everyone, don’t be afraid. Be grateful for our privilege to speak, which the people of our history has hoped for years, and voice out your opinion. In order for us to be heard, we should do this altogether. Every voice counts. Make yours help, and LET THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE BE HEARD!
