Do Something & Share Your View

email-lostComplaining on FB and Social Media Doesn’t Get It Done

Whatever your position is on Syria, make your voice count instead of merely talking about it on social media. You can share stories, post tweets, rant and rave on message boards. But those communications do nothing to express your view to your Congressional Representatives or the White House. Get involved and do something about how you feel so that it makes a difference.

You can make your view count by contacting your representatives in Congress. If you don’t know how to do that, you can email them through their contact forms.

To email the President you’ll need to fill out the White House Contact Form.

To find your Congressional representatives, go to their websites at:
Find your Senator at senate.gov,
Find Your Congress-member at house.gov

Both congressional sites allow you to find your representative through a search in the top right hand corner of the page of each site.

I’m against military action and I urge others to support diplomatic efforts be exhausted before any violent action take place. If you need an example of what to send, try this:

To The Honorable (enter their name here)

As a constituent, I am writing to let you know that I oppose any military action in Syria.

I realize in today’s world violence against citizens by its government must be addressed. But the moral response is not to meet violence with more violence. Creative diplomacy is the best way to respond to the alleged use of chemical weapons. I urge you to work for a ceasefire, to pressure Saudi Arabia, the Gulf states, and Turkey, to halt the flow of weapons, and to pressure Russia and Iran to do the same.

Sincerely,
You name

I hope you’ll take time to get involved and make your voice heard.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Cups –

 

Eight of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft


If you ride on the coat tails of others; make sure you know where they’re dragging you to. It’s your reputation that’s on the line and others are not going to care how you got there. It might harder to walk your own path, but at least you’ll control where you’re going, and how you got there.


Additional Insight:

Those you follow may seem like they’re walking the higher ground. They talk the talk and preach the good fight. But actions speak louder than words and you may not be privy to what’s going on behind closed doors, hushed tones or through code and sign language.

It’s never a good idea to put someone up on a pedestal and assume they live their life in the perfection they preach to others. Everyone is human and we all have our faults. Even the best of us sneak an extra cookie now and then. It’s ok to give someone your respect when they’ve earned it. But make sure they’ve earned it for the right reasons. The last thing you want to have happen is watch your heroes fall and take you with them when they do.

The solution is to remember we all have strengths and weaknesses. Admire the strengths and try to learn from them by implementing what you like onto your own path. Don’t do something because someone tells you to, no matter what the promise or threat. If you don’t think it’s a good idea, if you feel in your gut that it’s something you shouldn’t do, then you shouldn’t do it. Because you’ll be the one held responsible for it.

Put yourself on the pedestal for others to look up to. Hold admiration and respect for yourself first. It will help you through the hard times, support you through the issues and help you to innovate, adapt and overcome. You deserve that kind of respect. If you give it to yourself first, then you’ll always walk the path of good intentions and protect your reputation throughout your life.
