Reminds me of a school hymn: "It takes courage to dare what no other will share;To be standing alone, one whom no one will ownTo be ready to stake for another man's sake,It takes courage to be true."
makes a lot of sense.
When you stand up for others, you often do so to preserve your own self-image, or to affect how others see you. Same difference, really.
Maybe the real test is, how many people stand up for themselves because of your influence. Because you may do what u can to save urself..but how about inspiring others to save themselves...
My friend scored a 100 on a difficult test and when the teacher called out the name on the answer paper, I stood up! I am truly brave :)
Hmmm. Something to contemplate on. Not standing up for someone you can stand up for is mere complacency and laziness. But tricky situations are then when standing up for someone could cost one something. To what extent one sacrifices to stand up for another is sometimes touching and sometimes foolish.
I never stand up. If people have something to say to me, they usually come close and sit down.
ROFL!@asterix :)) good one!
