Thanks for caring, Jenni. I want to reblog this.
It doesn’t feel like it’s enough anymore to simply sign a petition or wave a sign to protest this governments illegal detention and torture of asylum seekers. Nor is it appropriate to close our eyes to the reality of the situation simply because it frightens us.
Do you really think that you are only judged for what you do in this life, often it’s what you don’t do that counts against you most. [I should know] Just because you didn’t raise a hand to someone doesn’t absolve you of the responsibility to try to stop it once you know it’s occurring.
That time is passed and I don’t really care how upsetting you find the situation we’re in here in Australia we can no longer afford for the majority of us to simply sit back, hands in a flutter saying It’s so overwhelming.
