Welcome! This blog is about busting through the ” I don’t have enough time” story we all tell ourselves about civic engagement and acting out our role as citizens. Here you’ll find stories from people who spend as little as 5 minutes to support our democracy, activating their muscle as citizens.
As a nation, we’ve become accustomed to companies pandering to our every need…or creating a few we didn’t know we had. The same is true for our politics. I don’t know about you, but I’m not overly thrilled with the results. I think we deserve better and by being better citizens, we can call for a better game to be played. After all, it can take as little as 5 minutes a day. Let’s give ourselves the ball.
Do you have a story to tell? If so, we’d love to hear it. Please email it to me at debilynm [at] pacbell [dot] net. Put “5 Minute story” in the subject line.
