  1. We try every time we got to the polls but it doesn’t seem to make a big difference. 🙂 Thought provoking and that is a good thing.

    • Of course every time people go to the polls, there are two sides (at least) trying (I hope) to accomplish at least some of the same things. I agree that too often now, there seems to be not much difference. Since I vote, I feel I can complain if I don’t like things, whereas if I didn’t vote, I think I should keep my mouth shut. 🙂 I think I may write a bit more about this when I have a bit more time.


  2. Very upsetting. Even with the political activities that I participate in, donations I give, and writing and calls to local, state, and national politicians – it is not enough.It gnaws at me to see children die, civilians die, people’s treatment of each other, indignities and social injustice – whether here or abroad. I am guilty. The bell tolls for, and at, all of us.

    • Randy, although we’re often on opposite sides of the political spectrum, I suspect that on the whole, we’re working for many of the same things, albeit through different methods. I think each person has to try to make a difference at his/her level, in the home, the church or synagogue, in the community and at work. I’m not saying the larger levels don’t count, but we can’t have a direct impact there as easily, although we should always keep trying.


  3. Janet, this is one of my favorite quotes about human behavior or crowds. It doesn’t stop to amaze me that people are aware of it and still opt to be indifferent instead of taking ownership for their destinies.

    • It goes well with this quote: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” It’s not always easy to know what to do or, even if we know, to do it, but I think it’s always worth trying, over and over if necessary.

    One of my favourite quotes – so true, and sad.
