9.11.2013 / Have Courage. Stand Firm. Be Brave.

1:55 PM

I made this graphic for the day and would like to thank anyone, anywhere on earth, who fights evil. People who protect the innocent and stick up for those weaker than themselves. Who instead of sitting back, going with the flow, walking towards certain doom like blind sheep following blind sheep; stand up and do something. The people who do what is right even if it means giving up their own safety and even their own lives.

I don't just want to be a fierce lamb in the way I dress. I want to be fierce in the way I stand against what's wrong. I want to be ready to instantly compromise my comfort and safety if I see someone in trouble.I think about that all day, all the time. I really hope I'll be courageous enough to what's right when the time comes.

I like this quote I read recently from Teddy Roosevelt.
"It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out where the strong man stumbled, or where a doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs, and who comes up short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause. The man who at best knows the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, fails while daring greatly, so that his place will never be with those cold timid souls who never knew victory or defeat."
