Standing Firm; Even When You Stand Alone

As I have stated countless times, there is no doubt that there are many people who oppose the idea of liberty. Whether it is because they just don’t fully understand it, they enjoy the free stuff they gain from not having it, or they’re a tyrant who gains power from taking it, there is never a shortage of people who will try their hardest to stop liberty from being restored. To me, this has always been difficult. It is hard to continue fighting for something when it seems like most of the time you are fighting alone, but I’ve learned that even if I am standing alone, I am still standing up for something I know to be right. While thinking about this, the founding fathers always come to mind. Compared to the forces of the tyrant, they were few, they stood relatively alone; however, they knew liberty was worth fighting for, even if they were greatly outnumbered. All odds were against them, but they fought courageously and continuously for what they knew to be right, and succeed in taking back the liberty that had been stolen from them. Thomas S. Monson boldly declared, “Dare to stand alone. Dare to have a purpose firm; dare to make it known.” Whether you stand with ten people, or ten million, right is right, and wrong is wrong. Nothing will change that. Your choice, is whether you will go along with the crowd, even if what they are doing is wrong, or stand out, and stand up for what you know to be right. I can assure you, that even if you feel like no one is with you, you are never alone if you are doing what is right. It may be difficult to fight for something so many people seem to say is wrong, but if you do, you will start to see all the good that comes from doing so.

Yours truly,
