WARNING: May contain opinions
Me, I don't usually do blogs and I don't generally do plagiarism but I will often repeat and spread (usually via twitter or chat rooms) messages, quotes etc which strongly resonate with my own beliefs and feelings... or those which I aspire to achieve. The following is one such writing I want to repeat here as a blog. The original link is in the title (credit where credit's due). Thank you Sean McAlpin!
I am involved in activism in my life. This means I protest, I march, and I try to educate myself on issues affecting the world.
I believe my voice and my body matter. So I speak up and put my body in the way of what I believe is injustice.
I believe that those on the sidelines judging are scared. I’m not. So I fight for them even though they judge. For I love them.
I love the idea of fighting for a better world. Not a better life for me, not for comfort, not for ease, not for objects and shiny things, but sacrificing those things for a better world, for my children, for all.
The world may be a better place or a worse place when I leave it. But I’ll be damned if I’m not going to try to make it a better place. And I’ll be damned if I think any sort of restraint or decorum or inhibition will add to the world being a better place.
I think there is enough repression and fear in the world and I refuse to add to it. So judge, join, or contemplate. It’s no matter to me. Its my life after all and I get to do with it what I want.
I will love no matter what. I will love you while you beat me, I’ll love you while you judge me. I’ll love you while you hate me.
