Came across a really powerful video today and just had to share. It speaks to what I want to do, in a small part, with this blog.
Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpl84D-uNmY
Justice is never not worth fighting for. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere; so we fight everyday and we struggle and we become a voice for those who are voiceless, a noise for those who can’t beat the own drums or toot their own horns. We should never tire from demanding what is right in this world. And we can all debate what right is and where that notion comes from but in the end we all know the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And I would go so far as to extend it. Expect what is good for others as you would expect for yourself and when you see disparity, do what you can to help. It may not be much. But whatever you can.
If everyone on the planet jumped at the same time we could knock the Earth off it’s axis a little. So if we all do a little something, something amazing could happen.
That’s Where I Stand.
