This is the cornerstone of democracy. What we don't like, we have the capacity to change.
What are the roadblocks we will face? The same roadblocks:
- Media bias and the easy ability to live in your curated newsfeed, seeing only what you want to see.
- Slacktivism- the idea that changing your profile picture or posting a picture is the same as donating to a cause, whether it's time, money, or resources. Not backing up your "thoughts and prayers" with actions.
- "It's not my problem." I don't know anyone who lives in Flint or Ferguson. My connection to the Native American nations at Standing Rock stopped at my grandmother. Yet, these are all real threats and horrors that our modern society has managed to gloss over.
Pop your bubble and live your life differently. That's how change happens.
