Injustice resides behind the curtain, but you have the ability to balance the scales and lift it out of its bondage. Going with the flow can sometimes condone the actions of others that harm or become hurtful. Speak out against injustice and condemn those who support its measures. Unverified rumors, slander, bigotry, hate and intolerance grow and survive when others remain silent and allow their energy to infect others. Speak up and condemn the words of hate. Only then can the world begin to change for the better. Even if it’s just your small part of the world.
Inappropriate comments will continue and fester injustice when they go unchallenged and ignored. Whither it’s the guys at work making sexist comments, or the relative who discriminates against gays, Muslims or some other group, don’t let their ignorant hate go without challenge.
As long as people think others around them support their negativity they will continue to spread their bigotry, rumor and lies. Silence against those words gives the appearance of agreement and support. And even the littlest comments can take on energy and snowball into something much bigger and more harmful than one can imagine. Speak up, stand up for the “little” guy and stop the propagation of intolerance in your world.
