This is written by a dreamer, and a believer. I’m writing this because I truly believe that we are equal, we were born equal, and we can live equal.
In mathematics, inequality means a relation that holds two values that are different. In real life, inequality means injustice, unfairness, and it is WRONG.
We see inequality in our daily life, in every day activity, and in every social interaction. Inequality exists between countries, cities, neighborhoods, and individuals. It exists between rich and poor; men and women. It is when the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer. It controls our lives. Because of it, people can not get a job, healthcare, or even the same rights. It’s when we look at a woman, and say: she’s just a woman, she can’t do it, we won’t give her the job. It’s when we assume that certain people can’t do certain things because they belong to a certain category.
Inequality means to me what it means to every one of us: WRONG. It is when I continue studying, and another girl of my age can’t. It’s when I can go to the university, and someone can’t. It is when I can sleep,eat,and live while someone can’t. It’s when we ignore the areas of war and violence, and when we don’t consider people there as equal to you and I… It is when we don’t give people their rights. It’s when we give privilege to some humans while others suffer.
Did I ever meet inequality ?? Of course, I did. I see it everyday. In our schools, inequality welcomes you with open hands. In our streets, we see it in every wall. It is the leader in our hospitals, administrations, companies. It is there, always there. And why should it go away ?? we don’t want to let it go, and it’s there. We don’t make any effort to fight it, and it’s there. We don’t like it, but it’s there.
In today’s world, inequality becomes a fact. We unfortunately accept it, live with it, and convince others that we can’t fight it. But what I know is that we do have a choice, we can keep on pretending that it’s a fact, and ignore it, or we can change the whole situation. I choose to change it.
As humans, we were born equal. There is no difference between you and I. So, why we invent the differences ?? Why can’t we just live the way we supposed to live ?? Why we create those lies, and call them facts ??
Inequality is discrimination. It needs to be stopped. Of course, like any other contagious disease, it’s hard to stop it, but it’s possible… We can do it, if we really want to.
