I don’t need to have 500 or 5000 people behind me to continue to stand against something that is wrong. That’s not to say that having a mass of people isn’t invigorating. But, at the end of the day, when something is wrong – it’s wrong. LNG is wrong. Pipelines are wrong. Stealing water is wrong. Poisoning water is wrong. I will stand, even if no one stands with me. I will speak, even if my voice waivers.
Luckily – I’m not the only one standing up. What worries me is the proliferation of this idea that if you don’t have 500 or more people standing up or speaking out, that your message isn’t worth hearing. This is not true.
So, stand up. Speak out. Base your resistance in love and prayers. Truth will win out.
