Every day we are faced with issues, circumstances, controversies and situations but the decision to fight or sit on the sidelines is solely ours.
Some battles are worth the fight; some aren't worth the hassle. The hard part is knowing when to speak up and when to be quiet.
When fighting for something you believe in, it is important to remember that not everyone is going to agree with you on all points. Some will wish you had kept quiet, some may agree with you whole-heartedly- but we must respect the freedom to have varying opinions.
Regardless of what side of the fence you find yourself on when trouble strikes, remember one of the most profound statements ever made and "choose your battles" wisely.
