I'm not sorry.

You know, I was feeling kinda bad earlier that I've been flooding facebook and twitter with 'Support this' and 'Support that' campaigns and programs. But then I thought - no. Why should I feel sorry for that? None of us should be sitting on our arses doing nothing when we are perfectly functioning human beings with capabilities and opportunities thrown at us left, right and center.

We live in an absolutely FANTASTIC country, despite what some groups might believe. We are so BLESSED to have family that loves us, a roof over our heads, food on our table, a bed to sleep in at night. Sometimes I can't sleep when I think about starving children over in Africa or Asia, who would be curled up with hunger pains each night, while we are moaning and groaning when we don't get our coffee in the morning. It's just a bit rich, if you ask me.

So no, I refuse to apologise for trying. For trying to bring some sense into our sheltered lives. For trying to get people to act on things they CAN change - when it is certainly in reaching distance.

I refuse to stop fighting. I refuse to stop believing that we can change the world, one step at a time.
