Here is a take on activism by one of my sheroes, Lyn Adamson.
Activism is not a spectator activity, it’s not a competition – it is at heart an expression of our connection with each other, our deep caring for the lives of those around us, all our relations, and our desire to use our lives for a creative and more positive future. It is the act of being engaged and real. And it is something we do best together. Cooperation is the strength of our movements. While thankful for the leadership and initiative of those who step forward, our success as movements is determined by the continued stepping forward of all who join in the struggle. Here’s to all of those who make our movements possible, those involved now, and those who are joining in new every day. This is a critical time in human history and we can make the difference.
