Democracy entails the freedom to speak one's mind and act on it if driven by conviction and principle, even if at times one must pay the price. Say what they want to say it is their right, it is even their privilege but in it is not only in school that we learn about the realities of this world, it is in the university of life; and it is sometimes far from what is ideal, from what is perfect. More often than not the theories that we learn in the four corners of the classroom does not always apply to what really goes on in the real world. In school we were never taught to become bad people we were always taught about good manners and right conduct, but in real life it is inevitable to encounter the worst of attitude in people. It is part of life. Occasionally when the wind gets too strong, just like a bamboo, one must learn to sway with wind or like a boat one must learn to adjust its sails in order to survive. Sometimes one does not even need to think too hard, one simply needs to use his common sense.
