The stuff I do isn’t very flashy, at least not very often. (Chop wood, carry water.) I drive folks to the grocery store or pick them up from BART. Write articles that share information (informed populace is a less fearful one). I read as widely as I can.
Most of my stuff is one-on-one with one large exception but I feel like my work is to facilitate that one-on-one conversation. And when that doesn’t work? Well. I have a sword and a staff and I know how to use them.
This is a long-winded way of saying play to your strengths. If that means you go to protests with your signs and first aid kits? Great. If that means you argue with your relatives on facebook? Great. If it means you keep your head down to stay safe? Great. There is no one way to get through life. Do not let anyone, not even me to tell you otherwise.
