A Call to Do More Than Vote From a Volunteer Firefighter
Welcome to our letters to the editor/opinion section. To submit yours for consideration, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please consider including an image to be used–either a photograph of you or something applicable to the letter. However, an image is not necessary for publication.
Remember opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect that of Redheaded Blackbelt nor have we checked the letters for accuracy.
By all means, GO VOTE TODAY.
Just please don’t let that be the extent of your civic duty.
Support your local businesses and organizations. Grill some salmon for Heart of the Redwoods Community Hospice, answer phones for KMUD or CLMP, lend a hand with the Eel River Cleanup Crew. Glutton for volunteer punishment? Consider joining your local VFD and the Southern Humboldt County Technical Rescue Team. Learn to look for and recognize injustice, and when you do; be loud, fight for change. Do something to make this world what you want it to be. Your vision of what that looks like may be very different than mine, but I guarantee they have more in common with each other than the dystopian future the moneyed and powerful are working towards.
America needs the hands of her citizens on the tiller.
