Warrior Wednesdays: Take Sides and Voice It Out

How many times have you wanted to take a stand on something and never mustered enough courage to do so? I admit it is easy to just stay silent among the crowd. It takes courage to say to everyone what is on your mind.

Dare to challenge!
Dare to challenge!

How long have you been keeping opinions to yourself in fear that people will ostracise you? Did your silence make you happy?

Truth is keeping silent is tolerating the current status. History has shown us repeatedly that speaking up can change the world. Can you imagine how life would be today if great leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Aung San Suu Kyi or Mahatma Gandhi  never bothered to speak their minds about the inequalities and oppression?  We would still be living in the same condition they did.

Today is the day to dare. Choose a side and voice it out!

Be heard.
Be heard.

“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” – Elie Wiesel
