Thanks for GREAT discussion ! Always been a rebel, by my early 20's became "a Rebel ~with A Cause(s)"
My fav boots has on shoe strings & on back of them "Rebel with a cause" written,lol was soooo excited to have found them years ago -2000, sadly they finall fell apart,but I saved the shoe strings :D
Is good to have a questioning mind-questioned everything since a wee lass..suppose what led me to activism/advocacy work over 20 yrs ago..
Peace & Smiles
Though we may grow weary from all the delaying tactics employed to maintain status quo, the slow changes in so many areas of society and politics have all come about as a result of unrelenting assertions of core values and principles that have slowly been recognised as supporting fundamental human rights.
I can think of no greater example than that of Nelson Mandela, though plainly Gandhi and others have also brought about important changes through perseverance.
The trick is staying alive long enough to witness the changes we are pressing for....
