If it feels wrong, you probably shouldn’t do it. Those words have been ringing in my ears since the first time My Father spoke them to me, and they are the guide I go by when I feel uneasy about something.
I found myself in a position where I thought I could do some good, but all that glitters is not Gold.
I struggled with myself , should I speak up or not, and I would be a coward not to ,
So here goes, and let the chips fall where they may.
I stepped down from my position as Poetry Editor due to an anthology that is being marketed very cleverly as a benefit anthology for children with cancer, when the truth is they only intend on giving the first week’s royalties to the children.
Perhaps I am not cruel enough for business, but this disturbed my soul .
I had been fighting with myself for the past week over this, until I became physically and depressed.
If I lose friends and/or acquaintances for speaking the truth, I guess that is fine.
I am just a Mother, Grandmother and a Writer. I don’t pretend to be better than anyone else, nor do I want to be, I would just hate for someone to be put in the position I was in.
