It's easy for us little peeps to feel that there's nothing that we can do to stop this madness. Our individual efforts to make the world a more caring and cared for place can seem ineffective in the face of corporate and political might but we can't curl up in a ball and give up. We have to try. 'It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness'. That's the motto of Amnesty International. As part of my own efforts to fight back I've joined them this morning and committed to giving a £3 monthly membership fee. That's less than the cost of a fancy lunchtime sandwich. I also made a donation and became a member of Reprieve, another organisation who campaign against torture and injustice around the world.
I share this without meaning to brag for I still fall short in many ways. No I have written this post so that maybe one other person will be inspired to join me in standing against the injustice that Trump condones. Can teeny activism be contagious? I hope so. My faith in humankind hasn't really been thwarted. I know that there are billions of kind folk out there for I've met many of them. There's surely enough of us to regroup to make a successful stand against this hatred.
