“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”
― Elie Wiesel
I would like to add to that quote: The opposite of good is not evil, it is indifference. Knowing something is wrong and not doing anything about because you don’t care, or cannot be bothered is tantamount to acceptance and/or support. If we stand by everyday and brush off the things that we know are wrong just because we feel there is nothing we can do about it, we are ourselves guilty of allowing evil into the world.
Take the time to do something good; and regardless of the size of the gesture, you will make a positive change to the world. Do not let apathy stop you from making a difference. You may feel what you can do as an individual is insignificant and that you are powerless. This is simply not true. As a single person your voice may not be powerful, however as part of a larger collective the magnitude of our voices is limitless. We can make a difference in this world, one Rees’ piece at a time.
