Lets talk about action…How can we all be part of the solution???

 

Lovers

So, you’ve just come from hanging with Rifey, and you’re like… “Well, what do I do now?” Here are a few ideas.

  • Keep an open mind.
  • Be Kind.
  • Do something to promote healthy self esteem and kindness within yourself.
  • Think about volunteering or donating to an organization that you feel passionate about, or one that focuses on kindness or anti-bullying maybe?
  • Complete some random acts of kindness.
  •  Donate your time to a local shelter or youth organization.
  • Give to mental health research.

There are organizations focused on mental health and warning signs that help to prevent gun violence before it starts. I’ve heard a lot of people worry about their guns being taken away and in the same breathe calling such organizations “gun grabbers,” when it really is much farther than the truth.

Kidz, I like a good conspiracy theory just like the rest of you. I think that movies like Eagle Eye & the Truman show aren’t far off. I also think that if we don’t start constituting change, it’s gong to get all Hunger Games up in huuurr for realz yo. And no one will lose the Hunger Games faster than me i.e. Sue Heck!

Some people own enough guns to open their own gun museum. They’re also saying things like “We need to get to kids before it’s too late.” Well, enjoy your guns and be marry, spoon with them, while we agree that #GunViolenceCanSuckIt, and consider being part of a solution too. Part of a solution that you can get on board with.  A bigger picture type of thing.

So you hate guns, or are uncomfortable around guns or maybe are like “I can’t get through to anyone and no one is listening about my opinions on guns…” Well….

  • Keep an open mind.
  • Be Kind.
  • Do something to promote healthy self esteem and kindness within yourself.
  • Think about volunteering or donating to an organization that you feel passionate about, or one that focuses on kindness or anti-bullying maybe?
  • Complete some random acts of kindness.
  •  Donate your time to a local shelter or youth organization.
  • Give to mental health research.

Have productive conversations. Step out in love and consider being a part of a solution too. A bigger picture type of thing.

Indifferent/Believe in the second amendment etc…

You don’t really love or hate guns. You don’t have a relationship with them really. You believe in the right to bear arms, but maybe kind of are on the fence in a few different ways. Maybe you checked out the robot stripper on the internet to see what the hype was about…and now you’re like where do I go from here? Well…

  • Keep an open mind.
  • Be Kind.
  • Do something to promote healthy self esteem and kindness within yourself
  • Think about volunteering or donating to an organization that you feel passionate about, or one that focuses on kindness or anti-bullying maybe?
  • Complete some random acts of kindness
  •  Donate your time to a local shelter or youth organization
  • Give to mental health research.

Have productive conversations. Step out in love and consider being a part of a solution too. Sometimes, being part of a greater good is not engaging in conversations that are counter productive. However, when we start a dialogue we usually grow. It’s important to respect the opinions of others, but find a solution to make this world a better place too.

I like this whole working together thing, and it’s individualized so it’s like kinda like a group project in school, and the grade is really within your soul.  

You can either be the leader, the one who does the most, the slacker or whatever, but no matter what, at least we’re all contributing and that’s the important thing.
