Are You an Activist or an Opportunist?

Are you at the marches? Do you get lots of cute pictures there?

Do you have lots of cool buttons and stickers?

Do you engage in conversations? Arguments, even?

Do you talk the talk?

 

Those are good things. If so, I’m glad that time is taken for those awesome (valid) things. But, if possible…

 

Do you organize those marches? Protests? Events?

Are you behind the scenes?

Are you phone banking?

Are you knocking on doors?

Lobbying?

Voting?

 

Do you walk the walk?

Are you an activist? Or just an opportunist?

 

Whatever it is, and whatever you do it for, don’t just do it for you.

If you have the legs to stand on, walk that walk.
