I know we are in a bit of a mess in this country, but are you part of the noise asking: Why don’t they do something? Why doesn’t someone do something?

Are we willing to take action and put down the bullhorn?

We are all in this together. We are the American people.

We must write or call our congressman or woman. Just because they are taking up space in a chair does not mean they have all the answers or solutions.

If people have some ideas that just might work, they must speak up.

What are we willing to do to or sacrifice for our country?

It can be a small thing like choosing cardboard packaging instead of plastic, or volunteering at a shelter or carpooling.

Our elected leaders need to know we care and are willing to help instead of being part of the noise.
