The last quote is:
“If God wanted me to be quiet, he would’ve never showed me what he does.” – Tupac
This quote basically reflects my life and the type of person I am since I was a child. Ask anyone who actually knows me personally, I am always going on rants about things related to social justice, mental health, and the unfair treatment of people in non-dominant groups. Whether in class, in assignments/projects, in a causal conversation or to myself, I talk a lot about social justice issues ever since I was a child. Some of the things I talk about affect me directly and some of them don’t. One of the main ways to get me to talk for a while is to prompt me with a social justice question and/or mental health. I have notice things since I was child and learned about them in depth while I was in high school and college (and still learning as I am being exposed to more information and experiences).
I have always been observant and quiet, I don’t talk unless I have something meaningful to say. And I believe that part of the reason that I have witnessed, learned about, and/or directly experienced certain situations is because I am meant to talk about them in a meaningful way that encompasses the full picture or at least most of the important elements. Now I am not a religious person, but I do have my own spiritual relationship with God/the universe/higher power whatever you want to call it. I believe I was shown and still being shown certain things because I was meant to learn about them, talk/write about them, and do something about it in whatever way I can. Side note: Tupac is also one of my favorite rappers, so I love this quote even more. If you watch some of Tupac’s old interviews and read/listen to some of his song lyrics, he spoke about social justice.
