Democracy, meet Apathy

After a certain point, our lives usually become routine, the old “same stuff, different day” ..business and jobs, kids, home, bills, friends, sleep..rinse,lather, repeat.We begin to take things for granted and somewhere, in the back of our minds, we assume things will always stay the same until we decide to change them.  Apathy sneaks in and  we seldom venture out of our comfort zones.  Until one day….BOOM!  We wonder how this could happen, how did things change overnight?  Very easily it appears…we stopped paying attention.

The blame still lies with each and every one of us.  We can not be impassive, then cry out in disbelief when our world is upended. You reap what you sow. Apathy led us to this point.  But now, we need to stop and act.

Fight for the things that matter most to you.  It doesn’t matter if Democrat or Republican, Left or Right. Our basic freedoms are being threatened, our rights, as people in this country, are at risk .  Just pick one cause you can stand behind and believe in, and FIGHT for it.  Stand up and make your voice heard. Get involved, contact your representatives when you know something is wrong or could be done better. We can’t afford to keep our heads in the sand with so much at stake.

Your fate lies in your own hands.  You can’t play the victim any longer.
