"Set a good example of what America means for the generations to come. They will need it." - Timothy Snyder On Tyranny
Before 2008, the first year I could vote, I barely knew anything about politics and our democratic system. I knew I supported a woman's right to choose, but overall I had no idea what I could do to stand up for those rights. Since that time, I have become more aware of my beliefs and the way our system of government works, but I still struggle to find the best way to make an impact. Over the past year all I've wanted to do is help, but I fell ridiculously short. Donating money to certain causes and action funds does some good, but my little bit of money will never change an entire system. Besides voting, I want to find more ways to be involved this year.
How about you? Are you involved in your local, state, or national level politics? What are some of the best ways to get involved? Seriously, I'd love suggestions or to hear about your experiences!
Thank you again to all the people in this country who are working hard every day to defend our freedom and democracy, you are what makes America great. I'm constantly awed and inspired by the courageous men and women who use their voices to speak out and create change.
