In my day job, I listen. That’s mostly what a doctor does. I do prescribe medicine and treat illness but more often than not my ability to read between and under the lines is what helps me out from day to day. I also talk to my patients, and I am scared by what I am hearing. Kids don’t care anymore. I know that adults have been saying that for 50 years but honestly these kids care more about their phones and their TV then this country. I just spent a few minutes IMing with a motivated young man who is not sure how to go about changing this nation or his friends. By glancing at his Facebook pace, I really got to see Social Media in action, and he thinks that he is not doing enough. We both agreed that the path our Nation is on is scary and we are not sure where we are headed. I encouraged him and anyone else, stand up, and speak out. Know how and why Congress and the President is spending your money. That’s right its your money if you pay taxes – its not their money till you send it to them. Call Congress, ask questions… And heaven forbid maybe we all need to drink a little more “tea from parties”. The same old same old pork earmarks won’t do – not with my hard earned money. Nor should it do for yours… Learn about how America works and if you don’t understand – ask a friend, facebook a question, or tweet your query to the world… there will be answers.
Lets take back this land I love – the home of the free and the brave.
