How many times have you heard "if all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too??" Well... it depends, doesn't it? I mean, what if the bridge is burning? Or if you're running from danger? Or if at the bottom of the bridge there's a sea of chocolate?! Okay, whatever, you get the point.
The way I see it is -- sometimes the people who take the jump are the ones we should be following. The right thing is not always the popular thing. Being a creative thinker or a free spirit can be a dangerous or beautiful thing. Progressive doesn't need to = bad.
You may not agree with everything I have to say, but that's fine with me. I'm pretty open-minded.
So go ahead, take a jump. The [chocolate] water's fine.
