i can get overwhelmed by all the "bad" news and bad news parading as "information" that folks seem to focus on...
i wonder if i'm making a difference, if i can make a difference...what my niche truly is.
and even if i find it, will that make a difference?
i'm not an "activist", per se. i'm not in the streets constantly uplifting (or yelling about) a cause. i don't feel the need to browbeat people into understanding...well, anything, really.
i care. i keep an eye on what's going on in the world. i don't shy away from the uncomfortable or the undesirable.
i try to live in a way that makes my ancestors proud.
is that enough?
do i have to be loud?
does everyone have to know my name?
do i have to wear my allegiances on my chest?
i seek the wisdom of the quiet elders.
it would do no good to drown them out.
still, i'm always asking, am i doing enough? being enough?
am i missing something, or looking at the wrong examples?
sometimes, it's hard to know.
