Passing the signal on
Because Matthew Shepard Can't, & I Can - THAT'S why.

There's so much wrong with the world, and so little of me right now to throw at any of it.  The chasm between the America of my childhood, the America I belong in (for all that it probably never existed except in my mind) and the one on the news today is so vast I can't really face it.  I can't say gay marriage is the most important issue out there.  I should be talking about global warming, or health care, or corporatism, or the anti-animal movement.  Or I should be ignoring politics and trying to get a job.  Maybe posting this shouldn't be at the top of my list, but it is the right thing to do, so here it is.

There are many right things to do; we cannot possibly each do all of them. But if enough people do right things, we change the world.

So good for you!

there are so many things in need of speaking out and acting. this is one of them. we all pick our battles; we don't all need to pick the same ones. good for you for speaking up. it IS the right thing to do.
