I took the time to reflect upon modern day human brutality that is beyond physical violences such as regimes that often silence human beings. We hear of the contemporary examples within Latin American countries such as: Columbia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, as well as historical examples, such as the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. When 33 years earlier China fired upon its own people that were protesting. Regimes such as these continue to the present day. Individuals are silenced, brutalized and murdered if they speak up, possess a contrary or a certain political, religious view and so on.
Another example is found where Radio Stations such as that recently mentioned by Senator Marco Antonio Rubio (R-FL), where a Conservative Cuban-American Radio Station is in agreement for purchase so that its conservative views can be censored. While these types of silences and abuses may not be directly considered as physical forms of violence, they absolutely can. Given the impacts and affects upon, physiological health, the barriers presented to human determination to contribute towards a democratic conversation, human progress, and to develop a purposeful life. That are also intrinsically intertwined with human rights of individual person.
I was encouraged and inspired as I read the following words from ACTS 18: 9-10 as follows to share as a form of inspiration for those who have felt or are in the midst of such.
“And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, ‘Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I have many in this city who are my people.’ “
