Struggle is a catalyst for your strength…

“If There Is No Struggle, There Is No Progress”

-Frederick Douglass


“First they ignore you,
then they laugh at you,
then they fight you,
then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Five conditions for civil war: 1) entrenched national polarization, with no obvious meeting place for resolution. 2) increasingly divisive press coverage and information flows, 3) weakened institutions, notably Congress and the judiciary, 4) a sellout or abandonment of responsibility by political leadership, and 5) the legitimization of violence as the “popular” way to either conduct discourse or solve disputes.

Dismantle the walls…

The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people. – Randy Pausch
