"Don't Be Neutral!"

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.
 If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral,
 the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” 
– Desmond Tutu

No, don't say you're "neutral", admit you're a coward, too frightened to declare yourself!
Choose a side, at last, and if you truly believe in your side DO something!
 Anything, whatever you can do! Protest, blog, petition, whatever...
Enemies we can respect, though we differ greatly, and struggle for our side to prevail, 
but at least both sides know WHY, and what for. That's honorable, that's Life!
Don't be "neutral"... the stakes for all of us are far too high.
- CP
