In recent days, I have seen hatred and bitterness and have been brought to my knees by it. I have seen those who say they stand for truth and justice wallow in their own judgement and deceit. I have looked to those I called friend and have had them spit in my face in jealousy. I have wanted to scream “You don’t know me!” and wanted to cry out all their offenses and yet I have stayed silent as a lamb goes to slaughter.
I have learned how people truly are and their jealousies and their sole desire to be part of the crowd. I have seen those who want to be in the limelight bad enough to destroy anyone in the way. I have seen lies and deceit and fake messages and those who call themselves the good guys be more evil than the bad. I have had those who are guilty project their guilt on me and yet I have remained silent and called for unity.
My character has been torn apart by slander and libel and yes, even articles to try and ruin my name. Yet, I will not back down and I will not stop. There are things more important than popularity. I stand by my principles and though you may tear who I am apart, I will stand for Assange until the bitter end.
I have made mistakes and said things out of pain that I shouldn’t. I have erred in my ways and have fallen many times but I will get back up and fight again. I apologize to those who feel I have wronged them. I am sorry for any hurt I have caused but I will not bend and I will not break in supporting the truth.
