Standing up

Sometimes it seems like the circumstances 
force you into certain situations.
In those moments your character shows.
You have to make choices.

Black trousers H&M - Black tuxedo jacket H&M - Black flats Vera Wang Lavender - Michael Kors black bag - Lace top

You can ignore the situation and let it go.
Ignorance is bliss, some say - yet, it still is ignorance.
You can be affected and complain, yet do nothing.
Or you can make an effort and do what it is that you can.

If you try, I think that you have all the right to complain.
You have to stand up.
Sometimes it takes one person to stand up for the rest to follow - 
but, if you DO stand up you also have to know that you 
take a risk and that could stand by yourself.
The neighborhood I live in is being attacked in every single way
that you can possibly imagine - for me there is only one way -
and it is to stand up.

I agree with you that it IS important to stand up for what is right. I'm intrigued by the small figure on the necklace you're wearing.
