Have you ever been discouraged over the news and felt helpless that there's nothing you can do to change things? You may be just one person but there are things you can do. In fact, there are things each of us can do and it begins with small and deliberate decisions we make every day. Change begins by loving God and loving our neighbors. Change begins when we infuse our lives with virtue and civility. It begins when we are dedicated to the well-being of our families, and when we work for for the betterment of our communities. There is a battle for our culture today. Look to God and ask him for wisdom and guidance, and remember that through Him you have the power to become the change that you'd like to see.
