YoTrip-Words and Thoughts

A place and space for me to express my thoughts

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for, September 20, 2011-What Makes You Take A Stand? (Vol.6, Iss.3)


“What Makes You Take A Stand?”

I recently had a friend say to me, “It’s okay you know you cannot save the world.” This comment was said, as a result of me sharing my frustration with how our community is more concerned with bringing business in as opposed to what is taking people out. It is so easy to disassociate, discount, or dismiss what is happening in the community we live, work and play in daily. The question I pose to you is: What makes you take a stand?

Sure when you think about what makes you take a stand, it is about what tugs at your passion. Some take a  stand for people who they feel need, a voice. There are those that stand up for a place because of what a place means to you. Also there are those who choose to take a stand for possessions. Be it people, places, or possessions that moved you, the courage to stand up speaks volumes.

So let me challenge you and your passion for that which drives you. Go now and take a stand! Sure you cannot save the world but you can seek to save at least one.If something matters to you, take a leap from your seat and show the world what makes you take a, stand!

  1. Oh my : Looks like you are doing well with this blog thing, lot’s of good articles. But I would advise you that you try with some advertising, you would get more visitors after all :). If you currently can’t invest in ads, try to find other blog owners in similar niches and try to do some banner exchanging with them. Your blog looks like something that can do it big, so I hope that you will get more visitors here 😉 Have a nice day
