Thanks for the response. You are right. All we do is rant. I am tired of that myself. The solutions seem very difficult to come by! But I have decided to take a step. Action is all that we need. My step has begun with the commitment to be a part of my local government. I don’t know how. I don’t know what to do. I don’t even know where they meet. But I need to at least DO SOMETHING. I will go for meetings and find out how things are done. That’s step one. My step two will follow from there.
