Day 38 Action:
By Rebecca S., Eugene, Oregon
On this Sunday, we encourage you to post a positive review of something you love.
Write a friendly note to a blog you read (hint. hint.) Send a message of thanks to a business that you frequent. Finally leave that review for Parkmobile. Smile at a stranger. Spread the love around.
It feels good to make a positive difference. Even in our divided state, we can find things to make us happy. Find the person who is working to care for the sick. Find the person who is holding the door for a fellow patron. Find the person who lets you ahead of a line when you only have one item. Appreciate the small gestures and let it be known that you appreciate it.
Or better yet, be that person, who helps the sick, holds the door, lets someone, who is in a rush, ahead of you in line.
One of @WeKeepTheBeat‘s Twitter friends is @QuakerNana. She lives in Lancaster, PA but comes to D.C., whenever able, to hold a vigil just North of the White House – in the name of equality for women. She does this in the hopes of getting the attention of the President and his administration to aid in ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment which was drafted by Alice Stokes Paul and first put to Congress in 1923 and finally passed in 1972 – and still awaits the states to ratify it.
So please check out her Twitter feed, send her some positive vibes and if you’re in town, stop by and say hello! It’s one thing to stand with thousands in solidarity, it’s another thing entirely, to stand tall and alone for all of us.
Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. – The Equal Rights Amendment
