For years I have considered myself a hippy, a supporter of peace protests, a campaigner for human rights. I join movements like One, Greenpeace, Make Poverty History and Amnesty International. I wear T-Shirts, wristbands, reblog causes….
But do I speak out? No. I am not a confident public speaker. I am Dyslexic, I forget my train of thought. I am not eloquent. But I could write myself notes, couldn’t I?
I am a trained teacher, I have done public speaking, I am well capable of it.
I like to describe myself as outspoken, but to be honest I am only outspoken when I am with outspoken people who i am pretty sure I will be supportive of what I am saying.
I wish I could get up & grab the mike like Elly. Tonight i’m going to find out where the protests are in London, and on my way there I am going to write down what I would like to say if i get a chance.
In the meantime I’m going to compose a post about how I really feel about what happened to Savita Halappanavar
