I used to dream of changing the world. Of course, within my lifetime – I would do something great, lead the world and make it a wonderful place. Childhood dreams. As time went by, my dream of changing the world remained, but I have realised that I am just one minor actor of many global dreamers, and I will live for just a few years of the long struggle against oppression that has been ongoing for centuries and will continue for many more. What I will do is play my part to the best of my abilities, working with other activists, and during my lifetime aim to make a significant dent in the oppressive hold on people’s freedom and joy. Then I shall hit the soil and let my cells regenerate into further life – and on will roll the cycle of life and the cycle of struggle against oppression that many have dedicated their lives to.
