If we see a problem and accept it, we are part of the problem.
If we don’t do anything about it, we enable it.
If we let it continue, we feed the beast.
Unaddressed problems gain strength and grow bigger.
A lot of times it’s easier to ignore a problem than it is to do something about it.
Every problem needs an advocate – somebody who is hurt, fed up, and sick and tired.
An advocate is somebody who cares deeply, takes initiative, takes a stand, demands change, and fights.
We’re only one person.
Sometimes we’re fighting giants.
Giants are big and powerful.
It’s easier to let the giants win.
But people out there are feeling the same pain you’re feeling.
They need you.
You need you.
Have the courage to fight important battles that matter.
Don’t forfeit and submit to injustices.
If we don’t stand up and fight, humanity loses.
Don’t give our power away.
Together we can pull off an upset and change history.
It all starts with one person.
It all starts with a decision to do something about it.
I’ll leave you with two quotes:
Dalai Lama said, “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
