Which side will you choose? Be silent, be a coward

“Silence becomes cowardice when occasion demands speaking out the whole truth and acting accordingly”.

—Mahatma Gandhi

We’ve all done it, myself included. We’ve stood around and silently watched someone get deceived, hurt, lied to, or mocked, and sat quietly. To make ourselves feel better we say things like,” well, it doesn’t involve me so I’m staying out of it”. Or the all too famous “I’m neutral.”

If you knowingly watch wrongdoing, and go along with it, even if you aren’t the one doing the deed, essentially you kind of are… you are guilty by association. Sorry dude. You just are..

Would you watch your child steal candy from a candy store, and then turn your head and pretend you didn’t see anything because afterall, “it’s just candy.” I would never, but let me be clear, some parents would.

Well, ignoring a wrong, or silently watching it is the same thing.

We must stand up for something. The universe is waiting on us to do something different.

Which side will you choose?

Peace and love,
Dee
