believe in the power of social media. I believe that many voices, raised together, can make a change.  I believe that we have a priceless ability to support one another.

But I also think it’s worth it to stop and breathe and think and read and make phone calls and send emails and try (and sometimes fail) to let the momentum remain at a slow, steady, lasting burn.

I hate that a few days ago I felt passionate about something and that today I feel passionate about something else and that next week I will feel passionate about another thing entirely but that I have rarely gone back to see what happened, what was the end of the story, what changed?

Did anything change?

I’m not sure what I like more about this post: the solid writing and thinking behind it, the core idea, or the fact that she tagged it “judgy mcrantipants”. Anyway, well worth your time to read it.
