Do SOMETHING!

We have all been there…. Sitting on the couch watching something terrible happening  on t.v. and feeling helpless and hopeless about the state of the world, or our country, or our town.  We may have strong opinions about politics, education, gun control or religion but we keep them mostly to ourselves, in our homes or with close friends who agree with us.

Maybe we are afraid that people who disagree with us will no longer be our friends, maybe we don’t like confrontation, or maybe we don’t really know why we hold those opinions.  But if you feel strongly about something then you should get involved.  Start small…. Be willing to ‘like’ things that speak to you. Spread the word…. I mean ‘share’ posts that may speak FOR you…. Join a group of like-minded people who are making a difference on issues that are close to your heart… Educate yourself on the opposing side so that you are able to understand where they are coming from…

It doesn’t have to be big.  You don’t have to take risks or put yourself ‘out there’ …. But you already are doing something… You are reading this! 😉
