Stand Up!

It is difficult to stand up for what you believe in.
Surrounded by people who accept the commom line.
Challenged for your beliefs when you just want to enjoy
the baby shower
or shop in peace,
get through a days work,
or watch your childs performance.
To have a simple ready answer when your position was gleaned from years of reading, observing, and study.
Sometimes your passionate love of freedom can come as a shock to those who take it for granted.
Sometimes you want to run away but your love of freedom tells you to stand up.

This is the 20th Anniversary of the massacre at Tiananmen Square.
Let's keep our freedom, that our future generations won't have to fight to get it back.

  1. Way to go. This is just perfect. I didn't know this was an Anniversary of Tiananmen. Definitely keep our freedoms by standing up. It is not a time to be quiet anymore.
