fuzmeister: I'm Heartbroken
I'm heartbroken.

The indifference of the majority of today's Americans is astounding to me. That being said, I'm also guilty.

I'm guilty of being part of the problem. I know I don't do enough. I may be "woke" to some extent, but I have my own microcosm of problems and issues. I'm not taking to the streets for my brothers and sisters in peril.

How do we fundamentally restructure how we address issues and events? How do we eliminate the callousness that permeates 21st century America? How do we eliminate the dividing line between rich and poor - between powerful and powerless?

I guess it starts with one person. It starts with me. It starts with you.

The odds are I'll continue doing some small things, but still mostly facing inward to a small circle of people.

I feel bad. I feel guilty. I'm not sure how we can really change anything though.
