This is the fifth consecutive year for 2Lei in Second Life, so join them for this year’s theme: rebirth.
Visit in Second Life
Once again together to inaugurate a week of reflections, ideas, artistic and cultural stimuli that come together over the common theme discussed at the “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.” Many of you already know that this is the fifth consecutive year for “2Lei in Second Life” and its initiative, and every year we really wanted a theme, that would be a supplement to all the background work of artists and performers: this year’s theme is “Rebirth”. We cannot just denounce: we must dare to hope, to dream, to act, to make the dream come true and springboard for new dreams. Dreams in which men and women cooperate together to build a more just, more healthy society, in which violence does not represent the instrument upon which to convey anger, frustration, fear, and aggression.
We need to educate children, male and female, to follow the principles of empathy, respect, and to consider the nature of living side by side to face the battles of life. We’re not talking about living as couples. This topic has already been covered. We’re talking about living together in society, in a world, with infinite respect, with dignity. Dignity that is too often trampled. Fortunately, dignity from other parts of the world emerges with great force. This dignity is as strong as the power of a redwood tree that expands to the sky. We think of Wangari Maathai, the first woman from Central Africa to study at a University and the founder of the “Green Belt”, an association that planted millions of trees in Africa. We think of Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani woman, who recently won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. She is currently fighting for the right to educate women in her village. We are also thinking of Waris Dirie, a woman from Somalia, who gives testimonials against female circumcision. We also think of those people who share our values, even if they are of the opposite sex. Those men who stand with us, and those men whose hearts we are trying to address.
We wish every woman’s heart beat be as strong as the drum of life. No woman will be forgotten or left behind. The “Rebirth” marks the passage of the works of artists who are exhibiting in these spaces, and the performers who will take turns on stage. The program is rich and detailed, and offers many insights. Now we want to talk about “rebirth”. A rebirth towards a world where people can live, breathe, and dream without the fear of having to defend themselves. We are reborn together in front of each painting, opera, photograph, theater or musical show that a fragment of this kaleidoscope of images, desires, dreams, passions, and every project of rebirth involves. Primarily this involves the denunciation of what is evil, of what is burning, what clip wings, and cuts short lives. Then, after the denunciation, comes the dream: the work, the strength to believe it, and to make it happen together. “TOGETHER” is the keyword of a true renaissance. And we will be the first to give testimony. Men and women who, together, believe in this project and have put in place. Thank you for being there, thank you for sharing this journey with us.
