One of the more important themes of my op-ed commercials is that if you don’t stand for something, then you end up standing on nothing. After celebrating the Fourth of July with my family and friends, I felt a renewed sense of appreciation for what our Founding Fathers created when they stood up against a government that denied their rights and opportunities – and took a stand contrary to the popular opinion of the day.
I know that my blogs and op-ed commercials are unpopular with many people – liberal opinions are not the popular persuasion of the day. But I think that my advocating for people who are on the margins of society strengthens the core of our society. I think that declaring the truth is an important part of solving problems. I am not comparing myself in any way with the Founding Fathers, but I do believe that having the courage to say and do what is right is the key to what created our Country and what has made it great in the past. It is the single most important attribute of a good trial attorney.
I have decided to spend a bit more time responding to your messages on the blog site and I especially want to encourage those who disagree with my comments because I want to learn what you have to say as well. So stand up.
