Making a Difference
I spent my afternoon with hundreds of other advocates walking around the legislative plaza in Nashville, TN, visiting our Senators and Representatives, talking with them and their staffs about the importance of families.
As we walked the halls where bills are written and laws are formed I quickly realized we weren’t the only advocates expressing their hope for our legislators’ support. The building was filled with individuals and groups of concerned citizens. I sat next to one lady who was passionate about her cause. She explained the need for her bill and, though I didn’t share her viewpoint, admired her willingness to try and navigate the bureaucratic maze, morass and mess.
Most people complain about our world, the injustice, the evil, the hurt but people who care enough to make it better, actually get their hands dirty, go outside of their comfort zones, risk being turned down and turned away?… those are folks I’m willing to listen to because they are the ones making a difference.
