For those who think they lack the courage

If someone walked up to you and punched you in the stomach, you'd probably react.

You'd lash out; you'd walk away; you'd defend yourself.

Yet, everyday you come into work, sit down at your desk, power up your pc and get willingly get sucker punched by culture around you.

The blow steals your breath, you start to doubt yourself, and eventually you just surrender.

It's easy to fall into the trap of being the victim, of raising your hand to complain, while refusing to get off your ass to do anything about it.

I won't lie to you, it takes courage to step up and shape the world around you.

You may think you don't have it in you.

You are wrong.

You just need to get mad.

Who knows, you might just start a movement.
