an unheard voice

“give wiping poverty off the earth a go.”

This article was the winning entry in the year 5/6 category of What Matters? 2007—a writing competition, run by The Whitlam Institute, that gives year 5-12 students in NSW and ACT a chance to say what matters in society today. This girl’s writing is inspiring, and not just because she is so young.

If anything, her words are a timely reminder of things we’ve heard a million times and don’t effect us anymore – things like, “one person dies EVERY two seconds from starvation and every year hunger kills more than 12 million children worldwide”.

If she is this full on at this age, imagine the punch she will pull when she’s 15, or 20.

Bring it Lord. Make Poverty History.

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
