Subject: Imagine Question For 5/1

There are times in our lives when things may become difficult for us, and for those that we care about. it sucks, but it happens. And sometimes, the situation is extremely unbalanced or unfair. When these situations arise...we may find ourselves having to fight back. Bullies always choose easy targets, and if they think you're one of them...they'll never ever ever leave you alone. Hurting you is like fuel to them, and they'll get as much fuel from you as they possibly can until you put a stop to it.

However, what about when it comes to other people? When you see them struggling, when they're bullied or ridiculed, when they're being abused or taken advantage of? Are you willing to step in and help them out? now, this could mean an actual, physical, confrontation...or it could just mean a verbal thrashing, or unfair treatment at work or in school by an authority figure. When the time comes...will you step in and stand up for someone else in a time of need? Standing up for ourselves can be challenging enough, and it takes self confidence and courage to do so...but when it comes to your family or your friends or maybe just a stranger on the street...when you see an injustice being done to them, will you be the hero and rush in to help?

It doesn't make you a bad person to say no. Sometimes, it's just none of your business. Sometimes you don't know all of the details, and may need to figure things out before you rush in all hot headed and angry, trying to solve the problem. Sometimes, the real heroes move in after the offense to help with the effort to repair the damage done. And there's nothing wrong with that. But...in the moment...would you jump in to defend and protect your friends from harm or unfair treatment? Let us know!

As always, anonymous replies are welcome at my email, Comicality@shackoutback.net if you want to do it that way. Otherwise, just answer in the replies down below. I'd be interested to see what you have to say! :)

Take care! And I'll seezya soon!
