My action was to hold the door for many people all day. I’m not sure if this would have effected lasting social change. Showing respect to them lets them know that they are respectable.
I want to do more such as incorporating things that will help in the living and safety of the people in our community. Something that will help people believe that they aren’t alone, and that they can reach out.
Being involved in a social action project makes me feel a sense of belonging. And also knowing that I can make a change in this world makes me feel connected, and important. Even something as simple as holding the door open for someone can do so much. I’ve learned to appreciate the simple things that happen.
