    For Doing The Right Thing...

    People are pressured NOT TO SPEAK UP, they often fear doing the right thing when the wrong is so widely accepted. I don't believe we should feel bad for doing the right thing, to stand up for what is right. We shouldn't feel guilty for speaking the Truth.... people who don't like...
