Feeling Powerless

It's often the case in our culture and system of government that we can feel powerless. With the exception of our right to vote, there is not too much we can do to help prevent atrocities that occur on a daily basis 'at home' and around the world.

Unless of course we speak up and let it be known that we disagree. If enough people 'shout it from the rooftops', the powers that be will listen. They must, if they wish to hold on their power base.

Today I got this email from Avaaz.org.  It is an organization that attempts to change and make better living conditions for people all the world.

If you feel strongly enough about the issue they are presenting, you can sign the petition. Sometimes it can be the difference between life and death.
