COURAGE – WHAT IS COURAGE?

Warren's picture

COURAGE – WHAT IS COURAGE?

 

In our community we all part of one big family, a big commune.

 

In our commune, or our community, we ALL know of someone that IS breaking the law.  

 

In our commune, or our community, we ALL know of someone that IS a criminal.  

 

This criminal might be a relative. 

This criminal could even be someone in our family.

This criminal could even be a friend of yours.

 

The question that we ALL have is; "Should I do something?", "Should I say something?"

 

It is easy to just turn our back, look the other way and do nothing.    Yes that is the EASY way. 

 

BUT it is NOT the right thing to do!

It is NOT the moral thing to do!

It does NOT make our family safer!

It does NOT make our community safer!

It does NOT create a SAFE place for our children.

 

So if we do nothing what does it mean?  

If we do nothing what could happen? 

If we CONTINUE to do nothing what does happen? 

If we do nothing what other people are impacted? 

If other people are impacted, how are they impacted?

 

Let’s look at a couple of examples.

 

A POT or Marijuana drug user.

Yes we know that here in Mexico a small amount of the drug is ok for personal use, in your home.

The next time you decide to light up your joint, just think about this.

As you hold the marijuana joint, think about how many people were KILLED, just so you could smoke the joint.

Just think about how many FATHERS lost a son or daughter just so you could smoke the joint.

Just think about how many MOTHERS lost a son or daughter just so you could smoke the joint.

Just think about how many BROTHERS lost a brother or sister just so you could smoke the joint.

Just think about how many SISTERS lost a brother or sister just so you could smoke the joint.

Just think about how many sleepless nights a family has, just so you could smoke the joint.

Just think about how many families are wondering if tonight, is the night, that other criminals will shoot your family members just so you could smoke the joint.

 

Is it really worth it?

If you are a user, are you really a good member of this community?

Are you really someone this community values?

 

NEWS FLASH December 13 2017 – El Centenario - Man Executed In Ejido El Centenario De La Paz, Was 35 Years Old

http://www.bcsnoticias.mx/hombre-ejecutado-ejido-centenario-la-paz-contaba-35-anos-edad-pgje/

 

Would this young man be alive IF someone would have said something, did something?

 

You can ask these same questions about house (rats) robbers.

 

Yes we know that here in El Centenario we have lots of rats living among us, stealing to support a drug habit.

The next time you decide to buy stolen property from a rat, just think about this.

 

As you hold someone’s stolen property in your hands, think about the person that worked hard to save enough money to buy that item.

Just think about how many FATHERS that worked hard to save enough money to buy that item.

Just think about how many MOTHERS that worked hard to save enough money to buy that item.

Just think about how many BROTHERS that worked hard to save enough money to buy that item.

Just think about how many SISTERS that worked hard to save enough money to buy that item.

 

Just think about how many sleepless nights a FATHER has wondering if his SON or DAUGHTER will get caught robbing a house tonight.

Just think about how many sleepless nights a MOTHER has wondering if her SON or DAUGHTER will get caught robbing a house tonight.

Just think about how many sleepless nights a family has wondering IF THE STOLEN ITEMS IN YOUR HOUSE will be sized by MP tonight.

Just think about how many sleepless nights a family has wondering if their house will be robbed tonight.

 

REMEMBER IT IS A CRIME TO BE IN POSSESSION OF STOLEN PROPERTY.

 

REMEMBER “YOU” ARE A CRIMINAL IF “YOU KNOW” YOUR FAMILY MEMBER IS STEALING PROPERTY AND YOU DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.

 

REMEMBER “YOU ARE A CRIMINAL” IF YOU KNOW YOUR FAMILY MEMBER IS STEALING PROPERTY AND “YOU HELP THEM IN ANY WAY”.

 

So what are YOU going to do?

The choice is yours!

Are you courageous or not?

 

We hope and pray that you are!

Your family hopes you are!

Your community hopes you are!

Your conscience and well being hopes you are!

 

Remove the guilt and the sleepless nights you have and do the right thing!!!

 

If we do nothing we just embolden the bad guys into continuing to be criminals.

 

If we do nothing we just signal the bad guys to come to El Centenario because nobody will do anything to the criminals.

 

Your actions could save a life .... even your own life!!
