I was a witness today for a young man that was attacked and defended himself. I wasnt forced to go. It really was a pain in the ass and may have cost
me money since I had to leave my business in less qualified hands.
You know WHY I went? because it was the right thing to do. This young man was going to be sued for doing nothing wrong.
If It was MY son, brother, or anyone I would want an honest person to step forward, consequences be damned if he existed.
I initially broke up the fight as soon as it erupted. The hot head that started it all broke free of me and went after the kid being sued for a second
time without the element of surprise and that time got his ass handed to him. Two quick punches and his teeth and face were a broken mess.
The kid being sued didnt go after him again and rub it in, or hurt him more than was necessary. He didnt look for it. If I didnt go today he would
have been punished for doing what is right. I can not let that happen. If not I dont deserve the society I live in if I dont sacrifice for the order
and stability it has. Not on my watch. We must all do what is our portion of good to do. If not, we get our world as it is now. A Shameless ruin of
I understand the situation is different in your case, BUT, what is right is right. You would want someone to testify if it was you, or a child of
yours, sibling, whatever. You would want HONESTY, INTEGRITY, and COURAGE to prevail in your fellow human. You would ask those things of your fellow
If anything bad happens, cross that bridge when you get to it. Dont live in fear of it. That is no reason to not do what is correct. When would a
immoral man ever NOT defy the good that opposes him? That is the price we pay for our integrity. It is the cost of a moral and just world. Nothing is
Are your enemies greater than you? Are these people whom you would testify against in fact not your enemies? They who seek to ruin all those things
you hold dear.....would you not defy them, even selfishly so? For the right world to emerge from this mess, some people will have to rise to the
occasion and do more than is expected of them, NOT less.
I urge you to honor the man who was hurt, as a person, as a fellow human being. Do what is right. Help justice prevail. Do not resign yourself to the
systems failures without TRYING to make it work.
Do not live a day in fear. Fear is the mind killer.
Do what is right. Be true to your heart. Stand for what is right, the cost then made irrelevant in light of the prize of a mighty soul unblemished.
Fearless and loving spirits roaming wild filling the world with the light of their just hearts....THAT is a dream worth fighting for.
