The blog has been very quiet lately.   Not because there’s nothing to write about.

Exactly the opposite, there are many many things to write about.

Too many things.

And so I’ve been doing a lot of my writing for my work with the Apparent Project and for my Dad’s CarePage.

That’s right, my Dad has a CarePage.   And I don’t like to have to write on it.   He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer the first part of January and will soon be heading into round #3 of chemo.

What about the rest of the stuff that’s going on?

What about the group of 8th graders I talked to where every single one of them knows someone who is validly concerned about being deported?

What about the tow truck drivers in Detroit who will no longer cross the border into Canada to help a stranded motorist out of fear that they won’t be allowed back in?

What about those in the church who feel even more pushed to the edges than they already did?

What about governmental challenges that threaten the freedom of many?

What about people in government who seem to have stepped away from what they promised?   A former golfing partner of mine is in the US House of Representatives and to say I’m disappointed in the way he is handling things in Washington would be accurate.

So Now What?

Let me share two quotes:

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”    The Lorax

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”   Margaret Meade
