Rap, the one music style I never liked and never listened too, today I took my time and listened to the rapper Eminem for the first time. I am not too old to be open-minded; art comes in many forms and ways, some of them I might not understand.
Standing up for what we believe, that’s not that always easy. I admire people who are not afraid to speak up; it does come with consequences. The RIGHT fans don’t take criticism very well.
I lost followers and readers when I started to share my human and political beliefs. I didn’t care. I never blogged and wrote for numbers -never cared for statistics, it didn’t bother me much. Not saying what I have to say, would feel like selling my soul. My soul is not for sale!
In 20 years, when somebody will ask me. “Back then did you do something,” I will hold my head up high and will answer, “Yes, nothing big, but I spoke up.”
Sticking my head in the sand, that’s just not me. “There is nothing we can do,” that’s a sentence I have often heard during the last 10 months.
Why do I get involved? Why do I speak up? Why will some of us never be quiet?
Kudos Eminem! Well done!
