Fearless….

‘I loved when Bush came out and said, “We are losing the war against drugs.” You know what that implies? There’s a war being fought, and people on drugs are winning it’ *

Fearless,is defined as strong willed,brave and with a pure heart……

Not sure how many of you will recognise the name Bill Hicks.
For those of you who don’t recall, he was a stand up comedian from the U.S who died in 1994 way before his time. The legacy he left was to help pave the path for the next generation of comedians to broaden the scope of their observational humour. His satirical and often poignantly scathing remarks on politics, smoking and drugs not only made people laugh but made them think.
It’s one thing to be able to make people laugh but to make them think while they laugh is indeed a rare commodity.
His fearlessness on stage was limitless, if you heckled him you did so at your own peril.
There are countless videos of him on YouTube and there are endless quotes from him all over the internet.
Just for the fearless approach Bill Hicks had, please check him out………………..
