What was the cause? If you haven’t, what would it take for you to go stand up and protest for (or against) something?
Boy, have I ever? All my life if I didn’t like something I spoke up. I never kept quiet. A lot of times I got into trouble for not keeping my mouth shut. I stood on street corners getting signature to save the Everglades in Florida (which passed) and saved the Everglades. I marched in protest for many things, things I cannot no longer remember. And recently I protested in Occupy Las Vegas. I didn’t last too long in this group. A lot of the protesters were not protesters, but were there to harass me. They were perps.
Last year, September 2010, I made a sign protesting gang stalking. I walked back and back with my sign letting people know what was happening to me. I wrote that the government was harassing me and had hired gang stalkers to torment me. I did it for two weeks. Some people gave me a thumbs up, others were very rude. One man told me if I didn’t like living in the United States, I should leave. One man called me a bitch. Some gave me “the finger.” But none of them stopped me from doing what I had to do. In their own way, they did more to encourage me with their remarks than if they had said or done nothing.
Standing up for something I believe in is not an easy thing. There will be people who won’t like what I’m saying or doing and get very nasty. But if we believe in something, we should have the courage to fight for whatever it is we believe in. That’s how changes come about. If we keep quiet thinking someone else will take care of it, we all lose.
And, I’m sure, I will march again protesting something I don’t like.
