Anyone who knows me knows that I am an advocate for many issues. What they are really isn’t important as far as this posting goes. What is important is that if you believe in something, are passionate about it, and want to support it, you need to do more than give it lip service. Clicking “like” or “favorite” or “+1,” in reality, is lip service. It’s collected with a bunch of like-minded people and just shows moral support for the crowd.
To often, those of us who are passionate about things are only so in our minds. Or in a group of like-minded people. Many folks don’t reach outside that comfort zone. If you are really passionate about a cause you need to be working for that cause. Supporting it with time, effort, financially or with advocacy. Take time to write letters, call people, reach out to people with no opinion, or those on the fence. Do so respectfully!
If you can’t do that, at least band together with other folks of like mind and support the members who DO those things. Join a paid national advocacy. Contribute to a local chapter’s benefit. Do something besides sitting around and BSing with like-minded people.
