A New Message (from Jin)

A New Message (from Jin)

Dear Reader, 
 
Do you know the 3 deadliest words around the world?
 
It’s…..a…..GIRL.
its a girl new
Yes, it’s shocking that just having XX chromosomes is a death sentence in many parts of the world as the United Nations estimate up to 200 million girls are “missing.”
 
And even if baby girls are given life, their journey just to adolescence is awful.
 
Here’s a global snapshot:
  • Every 3 seconds, a girl is forced to marry.
  • 1 out of every 5 girls becomes a mother before her 18th birthday.
  • In 2018, 140,000 girls were infected with HIV – triple the number of boys.
  • 1 out of every 10 girls is raped (or forced into a sexual act).
  • Every 10 minutes, a girl dies from a violent act.
 
The GOOD NEWS is that we can change this!
 
To start, the United Nations designated today,
11th of October, as the Day of the Girl
 
And you and I can do 3 simple things:
 
1. Be informed about the real lives of girls.
2. Value and support girls in your life and your community.
3. Amplify a NEW message about girls: “Yay, It’s a Girl!” 
 
yay its a girl
un girls
Then, just stand back! Empowered girls are powerful.
 
Recently, I was in the presence of one – Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old climate activistA real-life superhero, she blew through the US Congress and the UN General Assembly boldly and audaciously speaking and modeling truth to power.

This can be the reality for girls – everywhere. And the time is now!
