I feel sad. I am upset. I am not a satiric cartoonist. The most daring thing I ever drew was a baby in a crib wearing a Santa hat. And I’m glad I did. Because I expressed my opinion.
I am entitled to have my own opinion and to speak my mind. Be it in writing, in illustration or in spoken word. Doing so, I will probably offend someone. I don’t care. Feel free to share your own opinion with me. I’ll listen. And if you have a point, I’ll say it.
But keep this in mind: THINK. Research. Read. Listen. Learn. You are obligated to use that wonderful brain of yours and to think, REALLY THINK for yourself. Change your opinion if you feel you need to. Or stay blank if you can’t make up your mind. But don’t simply follow other people’s rules. Don’t simply do something just because it’s been done for years. Don’t believe something because other people tell you to.
Oh and please, don’t hurt others because they don’t share your thoughts.
