the only thing neccesary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. ~ Edmund Burke
I really believe it is true; if every good person in this world stood up for what they believe is right, instead of leaving it to someone else, or dismissing the idea because they believe their voice doesn’t matter, then we really could be capable of great things, and we really would live in a safer, kinder, better world. Isn’t that what we all want to leave to our children?
That is why i sign all the petitions i can that represent my world view, even at times when i feel disillusioned with it all, ESPECIALLY at those times, actually. Because i refuse to believe that change is not possible, if we all work at it, if we all want it, if we all DEMAND it.
Eventually, we will be so loud, the leaders of the world will have to listen.
And i can think of nothing that is more worth standing up for than the rights of innocent and defenseless children, all over the world.
No child should live in fear of death, injury, physical or emotional abuse, starvation, slavery, sexual exploitation or neglect. ALL children should be loved, sheltered, nurtured. Everywhere.
It takes a couple of seconds to add your name, your voice. If enough people are prepared to take the smallest steps, it really is possible for us to improve the lives of children all over the world.
