If you see a problem in your community that needs fixing or an injustice that needs correcting, and you think, "Someone ought to do something about that," guess what? That someone could easily be you. Show up at a city council or school board meeting and suggest a solution. If a problem is affecting your life, it's probably affecting someone else's -- and that person might just be willing to join you.
