I Stand With You In Front Of The Tyrants

in #steem8 months ago


United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

I refuse to pull my pants down or kneel in front of a bully, a scam artist or a tyrant. I have always fought against bullies, from day 1 in school, no matter how old, big or strong they've been. I have been beaten, I've had bruises and I have scars. I have never walked away from any of my friends, no matter the situation.

At the age of 11, during the winter, I fought against a group of older guys. They grouped up against one of my friends in School, and I couldn't allow them to do it. I had to do something...

When it was over, I walked away with nosebleed, some bruises and severe pain in my stomach. I couldn't really do much, but I managed to get my friend free, and these wankers focused on me instead. My friend ran away, which was my goal from the beginning. He was safe.

I Am A Nobody, But I Can Take A Punch.

It doesn't matter if you can take a punch or two if you are with me. I will do whatever I can to keep you safe and out of harm's way. I don't have much, and the little I have, is destined for other things.

I need to buy a new computer. I need the whole shebang, including power supply, graphics card and whatever. You name it, I need it. I want it... And I will buy it.

The idea was to use my STEEM earnings, and the stake I have to do that. Well, I wouldn't even cover 50% of the expenses with the little stake I have left, but the idea was to use whatever I could, and to slowly build up my stake again afterwards.

You see, I had a plan. Everything was laid out perfectly but due to the recent events on STEEM, I've changed my plan.

I have stopped my power down and I have recently used my last witness votes to help my fellow Steemians. It is not much, but I figured it would be worth more than nothing. I will also power up any potential rewards from my contributions going forward, until I believe that we are out of harm's way.

We Need To Be Like Sam.


You got a real Captain America like story here. Digging it.

Thank you for stopping your power down. You were one of the first bloggers who's work I read and I remember you using your STEEM Earnings to buy some clothes.

Keep Steeming!

Yeah, STEEM has helped me through "thick and thin", so to speak. I've bought some clothes and I've even bought a new phone because of STEEM, the support I have and because of my work on and for STEEM.

That's just material things though. The endless conversations I've had with more than a handful really amazing people on Discord and a bunch of Steemians I've become close friends with... The people. I value those things far more.

I'm glad to be with you , Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things.

"I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are."

I am glad to see you back blogging @hitmeasap 😀
