When I was a lad, I was always told to mind my own business and not get "involved". I was also told to never air my dirty laundry. I never quite understood that but my parents were who they were so I didn't question them as to what they meant.
At the same time, I was told to always fight for what I knew in my was right and, if proven to be wrong, readily and freely admit the error and seek forgiveness. As I got older, the not getting involved thing didn't jive with the fight for what was right. I began to ask questions.
I was told that times are achangin' but we had no avenue to effect "change" so we can only hope that this too shall pass. So, I continued to monitor world events and my teachers in schools frowned upon my questions and openly stated that I just didn't get it. I got it. They just didn't want anyone to know that I got it.
