A letter from my heart to my future children,
Today is the 20th of July 2011, I am writing to you to let you know that I loved, cared and thought of you even way before you came into this world. I don’t know who your daddy is, your names or where we will be living. All I know is that the choices I am making today will affect you in the future.
One month ago I got expelled from Bahrain Polytechnic where I used to study the Bachelor of Business program. No I wasn’t expelled because I cheated on an exam, didn’t submit my assignments on time, got into a fight, didn’t attend classes enough or my grades were too low. I got expelled because my awareness and conscious to the injustice being practiced in Bahrain intimidates them. They expelled me because they failed to trick and fool me, and because they fear the idea of my voice being heard and becoming more effective once I graduate. Little did they know! Now I am STRONGER than ever. Little did they know! Now I KNOW and I am CERTAIN and I am RESILIENT and I am MATURE and I am WISER and I am FULL OF PRIDE.
A lot of people are telling me to be silent and move on. I refuse to be silent because if I do I would be allowing them to do the exact same thing to the next generation… to you my children … it’s not only my responsibility towards myself or towards my fellow expelled students, but it’s also my responsibility towards the next generation. Because I don’t want you live through what happened to me, and I don’t want your legitimate rights to ever get violated only because you chose to stand by what you believe in. For you my future children, I will work my best not to permit the history to ever repeat itself again.
I wish you a life of freedom, happiness, love, dignity and pride
Your future mom ♥
