Hey beautiful people!! I hope all is well!!
This year has been an emotional one for everyone across the globe! A lot of anger, death, frustration, ignorance, injustice, and overly confusing Politicians. I never thought we’d have Trump on a Ballot but I digress. During the height of everything I saw a lot of arguments about what should or shouldn’t be done. How about we transfer that energy and have a conversation about some different solutions. Everyone has their own method for change and that is why there is always multiple ways to solve a problem. This entry is dedicated to giving a few options.

Get Involved in the Community
Sign up for different volunteer events on www.volunteermidsouth.org , www.volunteermemphis.org , or www.volunteerodyssey.com. These three websites have various nonprofit organizations and volunteer events that you may sign up to volunteer for. Calendars with events are available.
Follow Blogs like myself, Choose901, The Memphis Flyer, and IloveMemphis on coverage of community events or opportunities of involvement. Also, check the websites from the organization that have mentoring programs. They also have different community events.
I can’t express enough the importance of voting on all levels! When you have City, State, or Presidential elections be sure to educate yourself on who is running and what their plans are. Sometimes it can seem like a lot of research but the decisions made by the individual elected can change how your city, state or country operates in several different ways.
We must hold those fortunate enough to be appointed in leadership positions accountable for their actions as well as know who we are electing.
My options are all local but the concept can be applied to anyone, anywhere! Let’s all live to be great people!!
