Standing up for your rights
“Get up, Stand up, Stand up for your rights! Get up, Stand up, Don’t give up the fights” Bob Marley.
Hello world! How are you doing?
Let’s have a reflection about our rights, our fights! First take the time to listen to that song :
Bob Marley writes this song in 1975 but it is still as topical as ever. We live in a crazy world today. My father used to tell me “History is an eternal cycle…” and he is right. Have you seen how Spanish’s migrants are treated in America? Have you heard about this movement #blacklivesmatter?
Today the simple rights are not respected. In 2019 there still have countries where the women are not allowed to work, to vote… They may kill you if you try to fight for an ideology or something you care about!
Don’t give up the fights. Sometimes we tend to focus on the wrong things. We focus on our problems. We get annoyed by these little things or else, but you should remember how lucky you are to feel that way. You should ask yourself: is it a matter of life or death? Fight for something big! Find your purpose in life. Do not let anybody take advantage of you. Do not hesitate to break off all ties with negatives persons.
Remember that you oversee your destiny. Don’t be afraid to change!
Get up Stand up !
