I learned this in grade school

"At some point soon we need to stand whether we have the numbers or not and go down fighting if we have to."

Parents taught me the traditional "turn the other cheek" and I took it to heart and wouldn't fight back. Made me a soft target, and I got picked on a lot.

When I started to fight back, it took a bit (a few weeks?) but after a while the bullies, even though they were still winning the fight, decided to leave for greener pastures and softer targets -- their goal really isn't to win the fight, their goal is to not get hurt while doing so.

Now, the Federal Government as a bully has different weapons available than the ones I faced in grade school. But fear is something to observe and act on, not to be immobilized by. Love.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. - Fully Informed Jury Association - Jin Shin Jyutsu (energy healing)
