James Dean was a rebel without a cause, Che Guevara was a rebel wit a cause. Singer Lauren Hill cries out to rebel in her song I find it hard to say. Her powerful words hits you like a sledgehammer. Her message is urgent. I quote a few lines here
“And what I gotta say, is rebel, it can’t go down this way
Choose well, choose well, choose well…
…choose well, choose well, choose well
And while the people sleep, too comfortable to face it
Your lives are so incomplete, and nothing, and no one, can replace it”
The word rebel has a brave connotation. You might even say it is Rebelicious to rebel. But it has no meaning at all if the reason or the cause it self is lame of selfish.
