    you should still care...
    fellas should be doin right regardless
    and ladies should too for that matter...
    it's about passin on positivity and not
    reflecting on the negative...
    if you see someone being done wrong
    are you willing to be that help and that
    voice to help her (him) be strong
    and stand her (his) ground for right?
    sounds like to me that you're that kind.
