The FACE OF TAKING A STAND – RESOLVE


This the face of taking a stand and the resolving to do what is right, what is needed, at all costs.

I am not sure if you will understand by the feeling, but being free is a spiritual condition. You can feel the feeling of this woman’s humility and her resolve to do what is right at any cost. It is a feeling of purpose, the sense of a power guiding her.  She is there, but that she is not alone, there is another power I am sure, helping her and moving her to fight on despite the fact that the fight seem so big, so complex and that the cost to her will be so enormous. Her brain may tell her that the conditions are totally against them and that there is no good reason to fight on, but she has ignored that voice of reason to except the testimony of her feelings.

These are the faces of the People of Ukraine, as they stayed in the streets at all cost, to stop their Government from taking them down the road to a Soviet style relationship with Russia and its dictator Putin. They had been living under the oppression of the Soviet Union in the past, and I am so glad for the Ukrainian People that they had the courage to stay in the street despite the 70 so killed by Government sniper fire in Kiev. These are the faces of everyday people, perhaps you and me, (mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, and young people) if we lived under different circumstances.

Tolkien’s words in the Lord of the Rings, in his expression to fight on regardless of how dark things seem.  https://pushinback.wordpress.com/2012/09/06/tolkien-on-our-struggle-for-good/

I also add this video clip to put an accent on where we need to go with our resolve. I hope that this post has been helpful to some of you in your understanding of fighting the good fight, of doing what is right because it is the right thing to do and that unselfishly you have chosen to do good for the world even when others cannot see the good you have done.

About pushinback

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen
