Next is finding a vehicle or a forum from which to express my opinions. The beauty of the Internet is that since I have understood my need to speak out, the Internet has provided a needed paradigm. I established my Facebook page and my blog post. Both of which give me access to information and a soapbox for my thoughts and actions. The day I decided to do a daily blog post, I thought long and hard about the commitment it would demand of me. Everyday making enough time to write approximately 250 to 300 or so words into a an idea or an advocacy that makes some sense. Over 7 years now it has proven to me to be very well worth the sacrifice in time in order to allow what I think and feel to permeate the ether.
It is a small way to put my stamp of existence into a context greater than the breath I draw in and out during my lifetime culminated by a headstone or an obituary article. Some build monuments to themselves as a way to leave behind a marker of their existence. I don't care so much to leave a tribute that has no substance to it. My blog and Facebook page are my testament. they capture me on a daily basis over time covering a wide gamut of intellectualism and emotion. I am trying to record what is inside me because what I have discovered about myself is that if more human beings were like me there would be far less trouble in the world at large. I don't want much for myself, instead I want enough for all of us. Is that so bad?
