Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth or compassion against injustice. As a society we are suffering as the rich elite steal from the public purse and innocent people are murdered for oil profit. The bankers that caused our current financial crisis walk freely among us in the society they so blatantly stole from. They have the politicians, judges and police in their pockets so nobody is ever held accountable. Corporations make billions of profit while destroying the planet and they very often pay no tax. If people stood up and agreed we need to find a better way to exist, we could change the world.
As Bob Marley the Legend once said “Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don’t give up the fight.”
