Quote for Today

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of
the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you
say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
-Desmond Tutu, clergyman (b. 1931)

    love this thought  🙂  in all ways – to not make a choice or a stand – is to err on the side of the negative or oppressor.

  3. Very nice. And so often I stand by thinking I can really do or say nothing effective. It takes many drops of water to make a torrent.

    You are right however in some instances if you do not stay neutral you become the “threshing floor” and you will be ground to powder!!

    My wife really liked this saying! In our situation it really hits home sometimes. And then there are other times where we find ourselves being “quiet” when we could be speaking up. Good thought to remember. Gods Blessings!!
