“Pretty soon, I’m just going to be a head on a skateboard.”
That was the typically tongue-in-cheek way a friend of mine explained his predicament.
Sure, many of us try to throw a bit of humour or self-depreciation into explaining away the binds we sometimes find ourselves in, but generally speaking, our binds are often temporary – and usually pretty funny in retrospect.
That is most definitely not the case for him.
It is a challenge he lives with every day, sure in the knowledge there are potential solutions just out of reach and that, at the end of the day, is the root of the problem.
The predicament in question was finding the wherewithal to get through a peaceful demonstration in Toronto to help facilitate a solution. But, when you’re mad as hell and you’re not going to take things lying down, how are you going to make a difference if the thing you feel like most in the world is lying down?
Well, why not? Lie down. It creates a hell of a visual.
