So, what are we to do?

Put your money and actions where your heart is and check out of this system. Take your actions to the next level and get involved and make yourself heard.

I’m not a fan of Christine Todd Whitman but gotta admit that’s a good quote if she really said it. I also don’t know who created the photo of everyone with their heads in the sand but it is brilliant and please, don’t let that be you with your head buried!

Thanks!
