It is curious-curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare. -Mark Twain. 

I whole heartily stand by this quote, its just so powerful it makes my tummy flutter with the feeling that you CAN do something. It makes me wonder when I hear the news sometimes, what our world is coming to. Lately, I have noticed some things in our world that make me so upset that I don't want to be just another person passing by. Have you ever felt so passionately about something that you just wanted to scream out to God and say "Why are you allowing this? and "What can I do?". I have so badly that I feel compelled to somehow make a difference someday. Truthfully, I wouldn't even know where to start. But then i thought, plenty of people out there Right Now, can handle the physical movement. What I'm good at, is sharing my opinion. That could be a good thing or a bad thing... but in all seriousness, what this world needs is a voice of reason and a follower of God, stating- This isn't right. God is everywhere, don't take him out of the picture. Of course we cant change it in a day or even a generation, but I have some faith in God, actually a LOT of faith and I know it's the only thing giving me peace of mind during these complicated times. You can't just let people step over you or push you down. And sometimes, as brave as it is, physical courage doesn't resolve anything. But if you make a statement and start a movement, you'll see how many people are willing to get behind you and support you. So many times I feel its easier to be silent and melt into the crowd. Its risk-free, you don't make enemies, but you also don't make anything of yourself. Doing nothing leads to more nothing. Don't be afraid to share if you oppose or support something that you feel strongly about. Its okay if your the only one because it also takes a whole lot of courage to respect others opinions. Just remember, God wants you to live like Jesus. That means loving ALL people but not ALL of their beliefs and opinions. Recall that even Jesus stood for what he felt was wrong in a very loud way. (Luke 19: 45) Don't conform to what is said to be popular. Don't hide and hope it will go away or all work out. If no one raises their voice, how are we to be heard? The devil never takes a break, he always has someone out there trying to bring us down. Satan hasn't a single salaried helper; the Opposition employ a million. ~Mark Twain~ Okay but clearly, if Satan can recruit a few million, why doesn't God?? He already has. It started with Jesus, who has forgiven us and given us new life. Now its up to us to continue the revolution, to live our life for Him.
