There's been a LOT of talk this year and last about being a part of the solution. I for one think Obama has done a great job in being inclusive. It's not the Government's problem, it's not the Corporation's problem, it's not the Poor People's problem and it's not the Rich People's problem. It's OUR problem - or set of problems to deal with.
I've said before that since we are a Republic, WE The People have to take responsibility for what WE do, what WE vote for, and how WE will proceed as a nation through this generation. It's not who YOU voted for or what YOU or I do that matters, it's what WE do and will do that makes the difference. Political rhetoric is the worst kind of cowardice. It's easier to say something than to do something. LET'S accept responsibility and move on.
Clearly the world is not doing well. WE are not doing well. You can look back and point to blame, or you can look ahead and point to solutions. Pick a cause that will make the world a better place and volunteer. Maybe you could even make it a full time occupation. That's exactly what I'm trying to do - won't you join me?
Better yet, be out in front and show US the way to a better world.
