When terrorism strikes in any form by any group, it sends shivers down our spines. The recent strikes in London, coupled with Egypt, Spain, New York, and everywhere else, have put us all on edge. We see shadows everywhere. Everyone is suspect and no one is without suspicion. And, that’s how terrorists win.
The people who created werenotafraid.com think otherwise. They want to tell the world that we are not afraid and are going on with our lives. And, they want you to be a part of it. By posting your photograph to their website, you send a message to the world.
Werenotafraid is an outlet for the people of this world. Action, however small, is liberating. Just look at the gallery of photographs. One can not help but feel empowered seeing all those faces. It says to the world we stand together as one.
These words come from the werenotafraid.com “About Us” page…
“We will work, we will play, we will laugh, we will live. We will not waste one moment, nor sacrifice one bit of our freedom, because of fear.”
They are brave words in a world filled with fear. But, if we say them together, they will grow, and our collective voice will be strong.
The folks at werenotafraid.com have done a wonderful job. Go ahead, visit the site, and view the photographs. I dare you to look into each face…each human…and then add yours.
