Changing the way things are takes action. I have labeled many posts activism in the past. Take a look at what I have written about and you can see examples from around the world. We don't have to start massive groups that work to change legislation to make a difference. Just take charge of an issue that you can do something about and go out there and do it. Even if all you do is get people to think a little more about what is going on around them you have made a huge difference.
