“Cowardice asks the question ‘Is it Safe?’
Expediency asks the question ‘Is it politic?’
Vanity asks the question ‘Is it popular?’
But, conscience ask the question, ‘Is it right?’
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe,
nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
Heroic quote. Superheroes have to over come this too. they save people in there comics and fight for the people and justice.
We all have to face situations when we are placed in a scenario where our mind is telling us all the questions but our conscience is telling us to go for it and that it’s the right thing to do. for example when you see someone being bullied and your conscience tells you to help that person. You think it isn’t safe if you see a tough guy wanting to beat a little guy up. you know it’s not smart to put yourself in such a situation where you can get hurt. You know not many people would stop and help but your mind tells you to help. Your decision to help or not , pretty much, determines whether or not you yourself are a hero or not. You go and help a person and risk getting hurt yourself and you risk being told things by others and you know it’s not smart. But your mind knows its right to speak up and aide that person in there terrible scenario. Sometimes society and our own minds will make us question the right thing to do. another example is when you want to protest against something you know isn’t right. When you see or witness injustice and you want to make justice happen. you either stand there mistreated in an unjust place or you fight for rights and justice. No one said choosing the right was easy, no one said it wasn’t hard, no one said it wasn’t risky and no one said you wouldn’t get hurt. Only good things can come from doing the right thing. Martin Luther king Jr. fought for equality for his race and yes he faced hardships and yes he got hurt a few times and yes he did stand alone sometimes but he fought for what he believed in. He became a hero, who seeked equality, peace, and justice for everyone.
