Happy Easter/ Ēostre/ Zombie Jesus/ Pagan Fertility Ritual Day everyone! I could rant about how the celebration of Easter is yet another example of christians taking a pagan holiday and making it there own, but I think I'd like to keep it on a lighter note today. A long time ago, I saw the movie Coach Carter and I heard a quote that changed the way I think about myself and others:
These words struck a chord with me because I know many people who are either remarkably intelligent or extremely talented and they downplay these qualities in order to be less offensive to others or to fit in with the crowd. And I think that's ridiculous! Why should anyone who is knowledgeable in many things be worried about being labeled a "Know-It-All"? Why should you have to appear like you have average abilities just to fit in? Since when are ignorance and impotence qualities to be admired?! People should be celebrated for the things they know, not put down. Everyone has something to offer, and by showing others what we know, exchanging ideas and sharing information, we all learn and grow together. We should encourage each other in our search for enlightenment. Stop judging and start learning! Stop hiding and start shining!
Peace & Love,
