Apathy is the glove into which evil slips its hand.
– Bodie Thoene
Quit being a coward.
For far too long you’ve been aware of the problem.
For far too long you’ve been burdened by the issue.
For far too long you’ve been frustrated by the situation.
But apathy has taken over.
You stopped loving – because you were hurt.
You stopped caring – because you thought it didn’t matter.
You stopped fighting – because you thought it wasn’t worth it.
Well I’ve got news for you.
It’s worth it.
Your relationship with your boss is worth it. He deserves to know how you feel.
Your relationship with your friend is worth it. She deserves to know what happened.
Your relationship with your child is worth it. He deserves to know why you’re frustrated.
Your inaction is not protecting anyone, instead, it’s hurting everyone.
Don’t you get it?
If you don’t say it, who else will?
If you don’t bring it up, who else will?
If you don’t take a stand, who else will?
The responsibility is yours. You’re the leader.
Go. Handle business. (View this blog post as the permission you were waiting for.)
Don’t wait another day.
Evil has no place here.
