Blog Action Day: The Power of We

by Miki Saxon

61995_441085872015_5181824_nToday is Blog Acton Day.

Founded in 2007, Blog Action Day brings together bloggers from different countries, interests and languages to blog about one important global topic on the same day. Past topics have included water, climate change, poverty and food with thousands of blogs, big and small, taking part.

This year’s topic is The Power of We.

See stories from supporting organizations, such as Oxfam, HelpAge International, Greenpeace and others that highlight The Power of We and more through your favorite social media under #PowerOfWe, #BAD12 and #Blogactionday.

Just how powerful is WE?

Can you name one topic or task where I can do more than WE to accomplish the goal or at least move it forward?

But ME seems to be the daily focus.

ME tends to filter WE through personal ideology and opinions.

ME tends to join WE only when the ideology and opinions are in sync as opposed to working for a common good.

When I lived in San Francisco I volunteered for a decade on the Aids Walk fundraiser. I formed a WE team that included on guy who was an Evangelical Christian. He believed homosexuality was a sin, but saw a greater sin in leaving human beings to fend for themselves while suffering.

Think about it.

It takes a truly evil person to withhold help for no other reason than the needful are “different” or think differently from them.

Become a WE today.

Together WE can change not only the world, but our little corner of it, also.
