I Like: People who try to make a difference
I find it quite disturbing and sad that if I ever post something with a political context on Twitter or on Facebook, then hardly anyone likes or comment on it - it's as if people quickly ignore it and move on. It seems like pics of cute kittens, caffe lattes and God knows what is more important then politics that affects our everyday life and our future. Isn't that a bit frightening?
Does this come from a feeling of not having any power, why care about politics when I can't change anything anyway? Or does people generally think that politics are completely unimportant?
Thankfully everyone doesn't close their eyes or glue them to the television or is stuck googling kittens, some actually try to make a difference and make a change. I am unfortunately not one of them but I salute and give props to those who do and join in as often as I can and guess what - they do make a difference and they do change things.
I am talking about organizations like Avaaz.org and SumOfUs and there are many more. All we lazy souls need to do thanks to these dedicated people who take on greedy unethical corporations and politicians is to sign up to their mailing lists or get on their websites now and then and see what campaigns that are on and which ones we would like to support and with a simple click sign and join in - I mean, what is there not to like here? A few seconds and you have actually taken part in something and maybe helped make the world a better place?
Come on, for the sake of all kittens, join in ;)
