Today's strip, 'Stand', makes a powerful point about principles, values, and the importance in taking a stand in order to support one's principles and values.
If one cannot define and hold principles and values that they will support despite all threats, actions, and risk to oneself, then one cannot proclaim themselves as someone who can or will make a stand. Each of us needs to have and believe in principles and values that cannot be compromised on cannot be separated from ourselves, and that we will hold at regardless of the cost.
“Never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Sir Winston Churchill
