What does it mean to take action every 21st?

You likely already work to align things like where you spend your money with companies that support the environment, their staff, and give back to community groups that support progressive issues. You also likely donate your time and money as you are able to different progressive causes. And considering that we are in the sixth major extinction hyper-accelerated by Climate Change, you are probably outraged over the absolute lack of both vision and leadership from the Executive Branch of the United States and share your disgust freely with those who listen.

Considering you are likely an activist, what possibly can you do on the 21st that you are not already doing?

The answer is simple. Find people who are also activists, keeping an eye towards those who are just starting to pay attention to this major transition we are all going through, and when you make a personal connection urge them to also spend every 21st raising awareness about our current state of affairs!

Let the idea spread like fire, like ripples of water impacting the next ring, like a breath of fresh air and grounded in reason, passion, spirit, and also sensitivity to the fact that for each person, their transition to awareness is a personal choice to wake up and stay awake. You cannot force another to believe something against their will, but you can spend one day a month spreading the message that the time for action is now. If others agree they might take take heart and take action!

Do you remember your transition? Do you remember your awakening? At first, it seems as if no one else is thinking about the crisis we are in. Or maybe you are just now starting to see the world in this way? Regardless, know that there is a growing consciousness that acknowledges both the quagmire we find ourselves in and as well recognizes that there are solutions we can and must employ post haste.

So this 21st, let your voice ring out. Sing to those in the choir and just beginning to find their voice. Invite them to join in the chorus.
