I've gotten a lot of flack from the whole Kony 2012 thing. For a few days, I was nail-biting over it as it broke out across the internet and went viral, then I did some thinking. Took me about three days, and I decided to order shirts and go Cover the Night. It didn't really matter to me how the media made it out....I wanted to do something...
I can't control every person's integrity. I can't control their honesty. I can't control their actions. But I can control mine. I am never going to be able to account for the Relay for Life and where the money will go. I can't account for if Invisible Children is spending money on overpriced salaries or if The Wounded Warrior Project is spending every dime on helping veterans.
But I can control me. I can work on my individual integrity. I can make my actions count. They are small actions, but every mountain is built by even little stones. Janetta makes quilts, Bob takes pictures, and I'm gonna make stuff. And I'll see how far I get. But the whole point is to do something, to try to make the difference.
Maybe we won't make the cover of People, but damnit, we're doing what we can.
What will you do?
