Actions Speak Louder Than Words

So our society has a lot of problems, what else is new? You don't like things the way they are-then change them. You can sit around pointing fingers, judging and whining, or you can get up off your booty and make a difference in this world.

You can start by voting. That's the least you can do-you know actually make some choices about the people that are running your town, state, and country, instead of bitching about how they're screwing them up.Even better, you can get involved in the campaigns. You can get involved in the issues. Do you even know what the issues are? They're not some slogan du-jour, that come and go. They are the things that shape our lives, even if you think they never will. You know something is just terribly messed up in this country if keeping gays from getting married, is the primary issue anywhere.Ever wonder how it gets to this point?

Health care, energy, education, take your pick; there are plenty of good issues and causes to get involved with. And the great thing is, you don't just have to get involved politically, you can actually make some changes with your own two hands and mind! Volunteer, donate, organize-be part of the solution. Anybody can gripe about the problems, but if you don't move off your couch, then you're part of them.

Now is the time for action. Now is your chance to change your community, make the world a better place, and leave your legacy. Reach out to your fellow man-and woman, and even the little critters that need you on this planet. You'll feel good about yourself, meet other dedicated and giving people, and reap immeasurable rewards.
