"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it." Martin Luther King, Jr.
Since when did the response to unrighteousness become "so what deal with it", "so what accept it". Since when did "it's happening to everybody" and "everybody's doing it" become okay to do wrong or allow wrong to be done. Since when did silence and inaction become the so called resolution. When did we become so defeated, helplessly accepting victimization, instead of fighting for our rights. When did the response from others become "that's none of my business".
Since when did we get so wrapped up in self that we have no time for others. Why if it doesn't effect us personally do we ignore it. Nothing matters until it happens to you but then again in some cases it doesn't matter then either. Since when did degradation become an honor as long as it brings about fame or fortune. What happened to our morals. What happened to standing for something. Why do we fall for anything. What happened to values. When did we stop standing for righteousness and start replacing it with nonchalance. Since when did we become so desensitized. Why do we have an attitude of indifference. Why do we have no concern. Since when did we stop caring.
Why is it that if you do care you're made to feel like you are the one in the wrong. You become the outcast. They tell you "you're doing too much", "it's not that serious". Why are you looked at as being uptight. Why are you told, out of fear, not to take risk to defend the truth. Since when did standing for what's right become wrong. Since when did doing nothing ever change anything.

“Love is that condition in the human spirit so profound that it allows me to survive, and better than that, to thrive with passion, compassion, and style.” Maya Angelou
"Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true."
