This is for everyone who takes the oath. Life is hard, everyone knows that, but it doesn't mean we should stop being who we are or stop doing what we love just because it may not be what everyone else likes, and I [meaning we] refuse to let them win.
I refuse to give up on my passion for animals. I refuse to lose my individuality just to fit in. I refuse to be ashamed that I love snakes and have pet rats. I refuse to give up on who I am to be "popular."
I refuse to stop liking Mixels I refuse to stop watching Turbo FAST I refuse to listen to metal I refuse to stop listening to some pop music I refuse to stop listening to Christian pop and rock, even if I'm not Christian. I refuse to stop being me.
