People like to say that if they were present during memorable moments in history that they would've gotten involved.
Are you one of these people?
Say, for example, that you were alive during the American Revolution. Would you have fought for the then-rebels against the British government? Give up all you know and have and the security of a relatively stable government to do what needed to be done to enact change?
If you were present for the racial integration of schools or public transportation or any public facility in the U.S., would you have stood up against the segregation dividing or nation?
If you were there when the planes hit the Twin Towers, would you have run inside to help people get out?
These aren't easy questions. I'd like to think I would do the right thing but I just don't know. Popular opinion (or "mob mentality" in some cases) as well as the fight or flight instinct can be pretty overwhelming.
You? Don't just answer what is right or what is just. Think about the external forces that can exert undue pressure on you as you try to decide.
