Do not be afraid to take a stand!
Sometimes you have to take a stand against an injustice. Throughout history there have been brave men and women who have taken a stand against injustices. These individuals took a stand that helped to make the lives of others better. Here are a few examples of brave individuals who were not afraid to stand against injustices of the world:
- Moses left the comfort of the Royal Egyptian Family to lead his people to freedom.
- Noah built the Ark.
- Jesus came to earth to teach men and women how live a “Christian” life. Also, Jesus gave His life for our sins to ensure that we received salvation from God.
- John Brown and Harriet Tubman risked their lives to end slavery.
- Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X gave their lives to end the injustices faced by Black Americans under the Jim Crow Laws. Both men taught people how to be proud of who they are.
- Rosa Parks refused to give her seat to a White Man on the bus. This sparked the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement.
The list goes on to how many men and women sacrificed their liberties and personal lives to end injustices of the world. These heroes and heroines took the initiative to make a change and fight against injustices.
It does not take much initiative to make a change. As Michael Jackson’s song “The Man in the Mirror” states, “The change starts with you”. Young people of today (21st Century), see the importance of changing the status quo. They understand that if you want to end an injustice, you have to take the first step to do so. God created us to take care of each other. He requires that we help each other when there is a need to do so. We were given the nature of caring and nurturing.
So, take the initiative to change the world and make it a better place. God created us to be people of action and not just all talk.
