In this crazy election season, there is nothing wrong with caring about politics, or (most importantly) voting your conscience when Election Day rolls around. That said, politics aren't going to change our culture the way you want them too. You can't pin your hopes on a better society on a single candidate or party or even a political platform. Care about those things, but don't expect them to save either your soul or the soul of America.
But there are things you can do, right now, to make your life, and the lives of the people in your community better -- healthier, happier, more forgiving and open, more just, more loving.
