Watch out.

"The biggest fear in fighting a monster is becoming a monster yourself." --A young Muslim man, quoted in this post on Colorlines
Be careful. Go out and fight, yes, I beg you. Fight for what you believe in. Fight for what is right and good and just and will better this crazy world in which we live. Fight. But never let who/what you're fighting AGAINST take priority over who/what you're fighting FOR. Do not become a racist in your fight against racism. Do not belittle manhood in your quest for gender equality. Do not trample on other people's freedoms as you demand your own. Don't air anyone else's dirty laundry to make your own look cleaner. Do not become heartless as you wrestle with heartache.
