From my life’s experiences I’ve learned courage has no limits. Courage can be perceived as stubborn or unreasonable. It can force you to stand alone on principle. It can create the perception you’re choosing battles unwisely that could adversely affect personal ambition.

The undisguised violence & vulgarity of the disagreements posted & the sheer volume of anti-social attitudes were like megaphones screaming at Jamaicans to wake up and smell the decay into which Jamaica’s proud history of decency & mutual respect has plummeted…CLICK LINK IN BIO 🔝for full article
