A New Year’s Resolution for a Political Revolution

View story at Medium.com

In 2017, we won victories *against* Trump. In 2018, it’s time we start winning victories *for* something.
 
So here’s a 2018 New Year’s Resolution we should all get behind. Get engaged, get informed, and get involved, even if it’s on just one issue. Become an evangelist on that issue. Have water-cooler conversations about it at work. Tell people what you stand for. Talk more and smile less.
 
I get it, Facebook is for memes and photos of kittens and the news is too depressing to look at. But if you can’t bear to look at the news in 2018, you’ll have nobody to blame but yourself when the news in 2021 is even worse.
 
Talking is just the first step. Find other people who are talking about the same things — or better yet, working to improve them — and see what you can do together to make a difference.
 
Tell me in the comments: what issue/issues do you care about? How will you go to bat for them in 2018?
