Powerful call to action by Anisa Makhoul
Lieutenant General David Morrison once said, “The standard you walk past is the standard you accept”.
Every time we accept the status quo of poor behaviour, harm to others, we are endorsing it. Change will take time, but can we at least start by saying that if something’s not right, it’s not right and we will no longer walk past that standard as acceptable. It’s time to be courageous and true and move into a place, a space that will create a fairer, better society for all.
“Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.”
