It’s so easy to look the other way. Without much effort, one can be an ostrich- sticking their head in the sand – to not be aware- pretend “it” doesn’t happen. It’s easy to push it out of my mind; let’s not dwell on it, because that would just makes me sad. It’s just too easy to fall into the mindset of “I’m just so busy to worry about things that don’t directly affect me”.
I urge you to care – IT should make you sad and mad! We need you to feel these emotions to bring about change.

These discussions spark ideas for solutions; they spread awareness and create motion to solve the issues. I implore you to make a difference, FEEL something, be passionate about it- whatever “it” makes you uneasy- become its advocate!

Urging you to go forth passionately and make a difference!
