Career status: as it turns out, I haven’t retired from the caregiving profession after all (as mentioned in my blog post entitled “Onward Goes the Journey”). In fact, it seems that I broadened the field. Instead of private duty positions in one person’s home, I’m now available globally! It’s not as daunting as it sounds, lol. I’ll do what I can from where I am, and if I can do something more, I will.
I’m also interested in reaching out to other writers who’d like to join forces (via our words and voices), to spread awareness about important issues in a peaceful manner.
A perfect example would be the ongoing pipeline protest situation at Standing Rock, which is getting very little media attention. I was able to speak with individuals today who have been there and some who live there. I asked how things are going and how we can be of assistance. They need our help and support desperately and they need food and supplies in order to continue with their efforts. Snow has already begun to fall in North Dakota, so cold weather essentials are needed as well. Check listings in your area to inquire about where to drop off donations.
I feel like I have an opportunity to get the truth out there regarding situations like this. I have a voice, I have writing skills and I have all manner of social media at my disposal. I alone can make a difference, but by joining forces with others who are interested in assisting, I can do so much more; rather, WE can do so much more.
Loving hearts prevail. Peace is the way!
