I will NOT calm down

When I saw a person holding this sign at OccupyMN Sunday afternoon, it struck a cord.

When one thinks they are being taken advantage of, or thinks others are being taken advantage of, being calm is not a rational response.

When I shared this sign via Twitter, someone noted the irony. Shouldn’t I advocate calmness if I’m thinking about peace?

Is it odd to agitate for peace?

Working toward a more peaceful existence means being willing to offend the sensibilities of those who exploit others.
