There is a group that shakes up and scares establishment to its core. These people are miners, dreamers, idealists and warriors. They dig deeper, make bigger wishes, expect more and fight longer. We are activists.
When there is war we don't just shelter the refugees, we ask why they are fleeing. When there are injured we don't just patch wounds, we ask what is the source of conflict. When communities are frustrated by ignorance we seek to educate. When we see sick children we don't just raise money for gifts we give the CDC Fits.
I applaud the work of your "Heroes". I see their Herculean efforts against incredible odds. Their stories bring tears to eyes and many big sighs. Our world would be darker, the outlook much starker and many a marker still owed with out them.
When the work is done though, the red carpet walked, the votes tallied, the audience rallied , the big plaques handed out and the devotions thrown about I hope you realize that sometimes we must do more than shout. Those who question, deflect rejection, and see the imperfection that avoids detection must be sought out. If real change is desired financial ties must be fired and corruption in which we are mired, must be retired.
I just scribbled this fast, Not something that will last. It's just something I hope you don't zip past. I am sorry that I made a stink, it's time we all think. Humans could be gone in a blink. We are activists.
