This week is giving up arguing. It represents those who are oppressed, abused or cannot speak up for themselves. There are many people in the worlds history as well as today that do not have freedom of speech. Imagine for a moment not being able to stand up for your beliefs'? What if questioning your government was punishable by death? Imagine being a child abused and forced to labor day in and day out instead of going to school and playing tag with kids your own age. What would your life be like is you lived in a society where your personal voice did not matter. Those who are oppressed and forced into silence deserve to be heard.
For this week take a small stance against oppression and all forms of it. Give up your right to stand up for yourself, in order to understand what those oppressed feel like. Try to imagine what it would be like to live your life like this everyday, try to put yourself in someone else's shoes. Its is hard to distinguish what is arguing, but try to avoid confrontation of any kind. Obviously do not allow yourself to be taken advantage of or put in harms way. If you are feeling overly excited try giving up talking for a week, or giving up talking every other day. Modify the challenge to your personal lifestyle.
