Just One Person

I know there are many of you out there that sit and think, ”But I’m just one person, how can I do ANYTHING?” Well, you aren’t just one person. You’re one person who cares. That caring part means a lot. Mother Teresa was one person who cared, so was Mahatma Gandhi. They didn’t just sit and feel helpless and hopeless. They did something. You can too.

I am just one man, but I care. My actions affect the people around me because I don’t sit and hide in a corner. People know what I’m about, and I’m not afraid of some government jack-booted thug who is going to try to stop me from expressing my opinion. Sure there’s going to be some who disagree with me, but I make certain they know I don’t have the same opinion.

Now, if you have been reading along and agree with me, then obviously you aren’t alone, are you? Secondly if you do care, then you have the will to do something. Do it. Go and let others know your opinion. Meet with those who agree with you. Form a group. Even if it’s a weeknight dinner once a month, just get together. United We Stand, Divided We Fall. Now where did that come from…?

Ditch the “I’m a victim” mentality, that’s what those who wish to subdue you want you to do. Find your God given talents and exploit them the fullest of your ability. If you don’t know what your talent is, find it. Stop fitting into the mould, start making your own. If you want Hope, and Change you can believe in, then Hope, and change yourself into something you believe in. You are the American Government, not some elected official, or ABCXYZ letter Agency. The political power of this Nation resides in YOU, the individual. Those guys they call the government, well they’re just your delegated representatives. You can hire them, and You can fire them. They work for You, so remind them of that every chance you get.

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
Helen Keller
