Sometimes standing up for what is ‘right’ is not popular, does not win you any friends and can be extremely uncomfortable.

Sometimes standing up for what is ‘right’ is not popular, does not win you any friends and can be extremely uncomfortable.  I however am unable to sit and just  watch, to dissemble and to blow smoke to cover a raging inferno. I never have been and never will be.  My father, a veteran of the Korean war, taught me to always speak my truth. In the end you are the only one who has to live with yourself.  While he did not agree with war, he did love this country and all the freedoms so many take for granted.  He taught his daughter there are important things that need standing up for, and important people sometimes that need standing up to.  I have chosen to take that advise to heart, and while my list of true friends may not be as large as some others, I know they are TRULY my friends.  So I will continue to stand up for what I believe in, for as long as there is breath in this mortal body to do so.  And if you do not understand, and want to walk away, that is fine. I wish you well on your life’s journey.  ♥ Robin ♥
