One Response to “Why Bother to Protest?”

    I’m proud of the protesters … all of them! Protestors play an important role in our civilization. They are wake-up calls to those of us who live day to day without paying attention to larger issues. The very fact of the protestors’ existence says, “Hey, this is important. It’s important enough for us to die for so pay attention.” If we don’t stop and listen to our fellow citizens when they are willing to put their bodies on the line, then what does that say about us as humans?

    Also, I loved this point you made: “Groups not only can make their presence felt and their voices heard but they also give each other the heart to do things they wouldn’t normally do.”

    May our hearts be full.
