It's now 2005, and I'm glad. Good riddance to 2004. It was an abysmal year. So I'm going to keep looking forward and not look back.
Do I have any new year resolutions? No, but I am going to continue to try to be a better person. In addition to being more patient, forgiving, and tolerant, I'm going to try and do more to improve the community I live in. Right now I volunteer cook in a local synagogue that makes meals on wheels. I enjoy that work, but I'm starting to feel like it isn't enough. I want to do more; I want to affect greater change, but I haven't decided what that will be. I'm open to suggestions.
I've considered getting into politics. I doubt I would run for office, but I wouldn't mind working for a politician. I'm a bit disenchanted with government and politics, but I should work for change rather than throwing up my hands in frustration. But I don't know what I want to do. Internet activism isn't enough. I'm not enamored with any politician I can think of that I would want to work for.
So what should I do? What should everyone do?
