I have been a coward, I admit it.

When I was at school, I was too coward to stand up and tell my teachers that they are so arrogant and it’s embarrassing to yell at and insult a friend of me for criticizing them so honestly. It’s just one of hundreds of cases that I see wrongness and corruption from the teachers and to keep my ass safe, I decided to stay quiet and what I told myself is “speaking out won’t help anything”. That decision worked perfectly. I went through my school years without getting into so many troubles.

When I went to college, I was still a coward. I knew deeply that it’s wrong to cheat the result but compromising with the teacher and other lazy students in the class always help me to pass with an A. When I see teachers who don’t do their jobs properly or who are not qualified, I kept telling myself try to tolerate it but deep inside I know, it’s a mutual toleration.

Then I went to work and I stayed coward. When I see how the whole market is lying to sell their services, I decided to be the best liar because honesty turns out not always be the best policy. I see how much corrupted the market is, how greedy people is, how irresponsible and stupid those decision makers are and how much a Vietnamese willing to do for a foreign corporation to exploit other Vietnamese to benefit their own ass and I decided to be part of it, to get something out of the situation as well.

Then I went out to live life and I stayed coward. I can see how corrupted all governmental agencies and officers are but it somehow makes life more convenient and easy and why not, I think, to compromise and survive. There are no reasons for a guy to spend time fighting for others who don’t give a shit.

Why am I writing this. Well, I want to tell you please don’t be a coward, not necessarily all of you, but come on, please at least one of you, please be different from the rest of this country. Sometimes, one may just be enough.
