The Mystery Incorporated Gang always helped each other.
“I can do it myself!” This is one of the first phrases that children use. Independence appears to be one of the first lessons that we learn.
In many ways, being independent is a good thing. We are self-sufficient, confident, and strong. Functioning alone is possible as well as in a group. As the word implies, you are not (“in”) needing to relay (“dependent”) on anyone else.
When someone is harmed, who do we blame? Usually the person who committed the wrongdoing and potentially the person who was hurt.
However, what about the people who stand and watch without helping? What about those who pretend nothing is wrong or never care to ask? What about those so concerned with their own lives that they do not stand up for the needs of others?
It is time for us to take a stand and bond together for protection. The “It’s On Us” campaign is trying to do that in the area of rape and other types of assault. This video moved me to sign the petition and join the cause.
