I am probably going to butcher this badly but I promise that you will get my point:
There is a joke, or something like a joke where a leader says something like —
â€œOh! There go my people! Let me go and see where they are going so I know where I should lead them.â€
Itâ€™s meant to be a joke but one could ask the question â€“ is that joke today even funny?
Where people are lost and hungry and sick and hurting and dying, what they need is a leader who will lead them to a place where life can actually work. Effective servitude requires one to be free of playing it safe, pushing private agendas and serving self interests. Such behaviors donâ€™t inspire.
Likewise, responsible citizenship requires one to stand up and say when enough is enough. Sometimes all it takes to make positive change is for one someone, anyone, to take a stand â€“ one way or another, in spite of their fear, because they believe. That inspires.
My point is:
the joke is really not very funny.
My point is â€“
the stakes are very high.
