Chain Reaction

Some people argue there is no point in talking about war, crime, and violence against women. Their take is that getting oneself upset or all bent out of shape about these things will never change anything and only cause unnecessary internal stress.

          “When you can’t do anything about it, you shouldn’t worry about it.”

I disagree.

All change begins with increased awareness. So talk and get yourself worked up about men shooting each other over a difference of religion or political structure. Let your friends know how it makes you cry at night when you read of another gang rape case…

The chain reaction it causes may not reach everyone, but when others see their own suppressed emotions reflected through a friend or family member, they will likely feel encouraged to speak up as well.

And this way, one day perhaps the world will understand how much human resistance exists against it’s current destructive course, and consider changing direction.
