Have you ever rebelled? If you have, how did you do it?

If being a rebel means doing my own thing when society suggests I do something else then yeah, I guess I’m a bit of a rebel. If it means caring more about the long term than the short, then yeah - I’m a rebel. I remember turning up at my graduation without a cap and gown because I disagreed with the working practices of the company that made the things. My parents weren’t too impressed as I recall, but it mattered to me more that I made a statement - even if no-one else gave a damn. Like I said when SLU invited me back this year, activist isn’t a dirty word. Doing something because you believe in it is a good thing. Caring about the future of the planet, of the population - and being prepared to say something about it - to disagree with the politician’s is a very good thing. More people need to do it. And I’ll keep on doing it while there’s breath in my body.
