I may be unusual but I’m convinced that it’s a duty owed to my society to stand against injustice. It’s not enough quietly to disengage from abusers, to say nothing in the face of racism or to walk away from the impoverishment of our neighbours.
Perhaps Desmond Tutu put it best…
“If you are neutral when the elephant stands on the mouse’s tail, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”
Stand up. Be counted. It’s a duty!
