Go Lifestyle: The Only Real Progressive Societal Change
It starts this with one concept, we have to do it all on our own.
Change in society, in everyone's lives and communities, are in demand all over the world. And with the protests, riots, and boycotts, the only thing that comes is violence.
If it's not pepper spray, rubber bullets or clubs across the head, it is outright neglect and oppressive harassing behavior.
Pushing when pushed appears to get us nowhere.
This brings me to the point this blog is making. It introduces united support.
United Support in this regard means the people of communities supporting their own communities together. This not far-fetched. Some neighborhoods already do this.
This will be difficult for the ones that cling to the middle class in terms of income, for the low-income neighborhoods, and the poor.
A lot of the people that are living in these neighborhoods will laugh. They will scoff and say what is very well known, which is reflective of all the issues one has when the income and life situation is not up to par.
When one cannot, or can hardly, take care of themselves and their families it is very hard to focus on anything else.
It is depressing when your problems or some else's problems in life have put you on a bad path that you cannot escape from.
However, we must move forward and fight for what we need and want in our lives. If we don't, we just suffer more until we die.
In these particular neighborhoods and differing parts of the United States, everything that we get is dependent on ourselves and each other. Helping our own communities statewide, or nationwide even, would be excellent for all of us.
So How Does This United Support Work?
First, people of all communities and cultures must come together and work together. It demands collaboration, compromise, and communication.
Second, it works with your pennies. Community revitalization, community programs, better education and better school lunches...see my blog post titled Go Education: Hey US Public Education Needs You Attention..., and safety in neighborhoods all need to be supported.
Overall, these things can all be supported by us just like maintaining our own health is on us. At least the nutrients we cannot afford to buy in foods can be gotten in supplements.
What's true and the issue here is that almost everything involves money. Support requires money.
This issue is countered by supporting only the important things.
Of course nobody can afford to give hundreds of dollars. But change, that is, dimes, nickels, pennies and maybe even a quarter or two would be enough.
Who Gets The Pennies and/or Other Currency?
Give your pennies to you local free clinics, to the public schools or you can buy supplies in bulk if it can be afforded, to the maintenance of playgrounds and community or neighborhood yard care, to your community food banks, to your local church, and to your local fire department. Say what you want about a fire department, but firefighters are known to show up in ANY neighborhood before the ambulance and the cops.
And if there's a guy with a riding lawnmower, that is the guy to pay to do yards and other parts of the neighborhood that need to be kept groomed.
Come together with your change and pay the man for what groundskeeping services he can provide. Nobody needs to have a snake living in any area where kids may go or pass by.
And I know 99.9999999% of you will curse me, threaten to slap me, and may click out of my blog altogether. I understand this, but I will put it up here anyway. Here goes, donate your pennies to your local police department.
I know. But, not all of them are bad.
Not all of them will appreciate the support and gesture, but most of them will. Of course this is not an obligation, all neighborhood or community leaders definitely have a choice.
I hate to say that it is all on us. That maintaining our health, happiness, needs and welfare as the citizens of one of the wealthiest countries in the world is on us, but it is.
What this blog post is saying overall is that if it's got to be like this then fine. We can handle it. We must handle it. It cannot go undone. It is dangerous for us and our families when it goes undone.
Any community can come together anywhere and help maintain each others welfare. Any nation of people can do this also.
We can make sure each child gets a breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We can live in a decent neighborhood that is clean, safe, and progressive. We can do anything together.
Give it chance.
