“Standing up for what’s right can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. Biologically, psychologically, human beings like comfort; you can opt for comfort over discomfort for a really long time. But eventually you get pushed to the point where it becomes uncomfortable to stay silent, to keep swallowing acts of oppression or injury. Then you’re required – you’re compelled – to act.
Hope is the thing that gets you to stand up when other people tell you to sit down. I am persuaded that hope is our superpower. It’s what allows us to overcome, to endure, to achieve.” ~Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative
