I wish we didn’t need to discuss the word feminism and whether we need to reclaim it.
I wish I’d managed to get my hands on some of those cupcakes.
I wish I could work out who I met and who I didn’t meet. And remember names. Ppl seem to like it when you remember names.
I wish that when we thought we’d solved the problems of famine with feed the world, we really had.
I wish that I’d got a picture of me with Tigerboy at some point, and taken more pictures of the ppl I met through the day.
I wish that I knew what we could do to solve the problems of the world.
I think I do know. I think it needs us to act, not wish. Do as well as blogging. Give as well as tweeting. Encourage our neighbours, friends, family to do likewise. Pressure our government to see ppl as individuals, both here and abroad, in order to change lives for the better.
Cybher cost me money. Not the ticket or the hotel, but almost the first thing I did after signing in was visit the WorldVision stand and sign up to sponsor a child. I chose a boy, 9 years old, from Niger. Check out my Silent Sunday post to meet him. Turned out that that fitted in really well with the announcement at the end of the conference that Sian aka GeekisnewChic is going to Niger next week. I’m hoping that I’m going to be doing a little work with WorldVision to help spread the word about what is going on over there.
I wish I could bottle the feeling of hope and determination and optimism and take on the worldness that I had at the end of the day. I’m trying. I’m going to sit everyday and remember that feeling, and see what I can do with it. I’m going to change me, I’m going to change this blog, I *am* going to make a difference.
What did cybher do for you?
