Time for some action!

The mind and body get frustrated if it is not allowed or denied the freedom of expression or their freedom of speech being curbed by others. Just as anyone’s action maybe of a higher degree than their speech or spoken words, there are alternatives for expressing oneself, especially when one has been a witness to wrongdoings of others.
