My prayerful protest to injustice and inequality

Many people who participate in social protests are motivated by a deep desire to take action—to remedy what feels like injustice or unfairness in society. In my case, that’s what led me as a university student to get involved in protest marches.

Back then, I felt that my only choices were either to push my feelings aside and give in to a sense of helplessness or to get involved peacefully in protest marches. I chose the latter. I don’t recall whether these marches had any effect on public policy, but participating in them gave me the satisfaction of doing something and helping to keep the issues I cared about alive in public thought.
