I have a big problem with apathy. Apathy is complacency with a capital C.
Everyone can find something meaningful and invest some of their time and energy. There is no shortage of issues, ideas or movements to get behind, so take your pick my friends!
The dynamic, young complacency crushers at Apathy Is Boring are on the right track. Their mission of using art and technology, and most recently social media, to educate youth about democracy is a shining example of inspiring others to take action in the modern age. They are giving passionate, young leaders an outlet to influence change.
Whatever you choose, there are many benefits to getting involved:
Vote, volunteer, write a letter, have an engaging discussion, challenge the status quo.
The idea is to get involved. It’s your world, so take an active role in shaping it into the world you want it to be.
No one has an excuse to be bored.
Constant Questions: What do you stand for? What have you gained from investing your personal resources into something meaningful? What are you doing to get others involved? Is caring sharing or is sharing caring? Remember the Care Bears? Why were some of them not actually bears?
