“There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’. There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard.” Arundhati Roy
The Preferably Unheard by Arundhati Roy
Seeds of Hope — Day 3 (22nd March, 2020)
There are two loose groupings of people who are most vulnerable in our society.
The first are the old, the sick, the housebound and those with medical conditions. The second haven’t cropped up in many press conferences yet. They are the asylum seekers, the homeless, those struggling with addictions and so many others who are holding on with their fingertips to the margins of our society.
Sarah Rose works at ‘Freedom from Torture’ with young asylum seekers separated from their families. Many do not speak English. Many are deeply traumatised with complex post traumatic stress disorders. Many are trying to hold it together, live in temporary housing and are dependent on food support to survive.
They are beautiful, fragile, often broken young people. Let us make sure that their needs do not remain unheard.
