Pick something you’re passionate about and get involved.
Even when you work at it, staying informed and getting involved can be a chore. To make things easier, I have pulled together my choices for causes to consider.
Please feel free to send me suggestions to include on this page.

here are a few suggestions for ways to re-use them:
“V for Vendetta” – I am not much of a “movie person” but I have watched this movie at least 10 times, and every time, I “see” the message more clearly. If there was ever a fictional movie that demonstrates the non-fiction of what is happening right now, this is it. This trailer doesn’t do it justice; get the movie. Get it ab Blockbuster, Netflicks, etc. Watch at at least twice and let it sink in, especially the sections about the “release of viruses….on our children.”
