Taking on a leadership role is difficult. Many times you have to rely on and be patient for a stranger to recognize who you are. You would think the strength of progress would be the loudest voice, but the few voices of the status quo yell very loud. I look around to see those who believe in faith coming out of the woods, but I wish it were quicker, because people love to pick on the person who stands out alone. For now, since I accept fighting for new progress against old ideas, I have to accept being a punching bag until I am recognized as a friend and people see and hear the other people yelling for change with me.
