We are afraid of the wrong things.

Most of us fear, “change”. Many say, “I want to make a difference!” Few will take up arms, (using one’s intellect as a weapon) and fight for a cause that one believes in to effect change.
The year, 1976 earmarks when the fearless masses of Soweto marched to bring about change in South Africa. My heroes, Mohatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko are prime examples of individuals who outsmarted an oppressive political system. These revolutionists did not use violence to effect change. They used their minds and led by example. Gandhi, Mandela and Biko stood up for what they believed in, they educated the masses and in doing so, created awareness worldwide and effected change.
“Change” is a verb.
