Against the Flow

Dear Reader,

Sometimes, to do what’s right we have to push against the flow,  sometimes we can’t listen to the opinions around us because it obstructs our opinions, making them seem small and unimportant, even in our own minds.  The world around us contains 6 billion people, each with billions of different opinions on billions of different things. We can’t always rely on those opinions or theories to be correct. After all, some of the most valued theories today came from scientist who were thought to be nuts at the time. And if we were to stand up and say that Benjamin Franklin had the wrong idea about  lightning being a form of static electricity, you would be made fun of, but if you managed to prove it,  it would go down in the history books.  I’m not saying that I don’t believe lightning is a form of static electricity, I’m just saying that not all the common beliefs of today are necessarily right, and it takes somebody standing up and pushing against the flow to prove it, and by doing that your are making the world a better place. You are clearing the path for the generations to come. I’m not saying you’ll be right every single time, I am just saying that you have to try.  “And if you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
