In connection with my recent posts here and here on President Trump’s recent executive order on immigration and refugees, I received a forward to this article which I wanted to share. It stemmed from a Facebook post by Justen Charters where he points out the many times over the past several years where very disheartening events were happening (and continue to) all over the world, and yet Americans were not protesting in huge crowds. It continues my thoughts that if everyone is genuinely concerned and wanting to improve things around the world, then why were you not speaking up all around the country when these horrific events were playing out around the world? Is it because the media was busy publicizing something else? Is it because it was not “popular” back then? These people’s lives are important and we should be standing up for them at ALL times, not just when it is the popular thing to do in that moment. Do you want to just be another face in front of the cameras? Or are you looking to truly enact change, even when no one sees the good deeds you are doing???
Ahmeli… that we will stand up for people during their trials, even when no one sees nor acknowledges our efforts. Do what is right during the time of need.
