“Anyone who fights for the future lives in it today.”
Fighting for what we believe in, no matter what the cause is something we have seen time and time again in our history. Each moment we encounter is done for the betterment of our future but it can only come to fruition if we choose to fight and live for today. Writer Ayn Rand reminds us of this in today’s quote. To be clear, fighting does not mean physically or enacting any violence. It is meant to be a cry to never give up or surrender in doing your part to enact change and can be done through our voice or through what we write. As is often the said the pen is mightier than the sword.
What we decide to fight for is up to us and it is important that we know what our why is in order to do so. Our cause is typically to fight for things that we deem unjust for ourselves or for others. We need to remember that whether it is for social justice, equity in education or global warming it’s purpose is beyond this current moment, the here and now. The fight is for the next generation and the generation after that. We must remove our blinders and recognize how great of an impact we can have in the lives of others. It starts at this very moment today. So what is it to you that you feel is worth fighting for?
