I asked for help
He gave me strength to help others
I asked for guidance
He gave me prayers to light my path
I asked for peace
He gave me His words to find answers
I asked for justice
He gave me patience to place my trust in Him
I asked for happiness
He gave me a heart to be able to forgive others.

I was born human
A human who had dreams
A human who wanted to live life
A human who wanted to explore
A human who wanted peace
A human who wanted to be part of this world
I am Rohingya
And I am that human
To me books are magical. They have the power to lift you up, take you to many exciting journeys, faraway lands, different worlds, and then bring you back with changed vision and new ideas.
I like to read. For some of us reading means reading books only. To me reading is everything from cereal box label to twitter posts to online articles even road signs.
A while back, I spotted a book with crumpled, torn covers, yellow crispy pages very loosely bound. The title attracted me “Christina’s Ghost” and I was compelled to read it. The book was written for young readers but hey reading is reading and so I read it.
Sad eyes – shivering body
Little fists – bare feet
Empty bellies – dry lips
Lost parents – no country
Scary nights – long days
Broken toys – no books
Questions many – answers none
I yet still keep my head high
For the world to see
I am a survivor – I am Rohingya
This is my second blog post that I wanted to do to once again create awareness around this humanitarian project. We all can play our part of spreading the word about Testimony Tailors by re-blogging this blog post, so Testimony Tailors can get maximum exposure on social media. Even one donation towards the gift item will help them tremendously. Change does not happen overnight. It is a constant process and a struggle. Most of us have the gift of writing. Today we can show the world the power of pen and contribute towards greater good. I would strongly encourage and request my followers, fellow bloggers to please re-blog this appeal on their websites for even a day to create awareness. I would request my readers to share this post on their Facebook to bring attention towards the most persecuted people of the world.
