But will you say anything if you disagree? Also most likely no. You think it doesn't matter if you were to say anything. It wouldn't change their mind, it wouldn't make us do things different. We think one person does not have enough power to change the world. So most of the time even if we think a situation is so unjust we will remain silent. Then later on you will think about all the things you could've and should've said. By not speaking our mind we're letting horrible things slide in our world. The first amendment in our constitution includes Freedom of Speech, so why don't we use it.

Sometimes I do but sometimes, I don't. If I don't later i'll usually go on to think why didn't I just stop it, it wouldn't of been that hard. This doesn't necessarily make me a bad person but it doesn't make me any
