There are a lot of talks these days about how the world is changing. And it's true, the world is always changing. But what we often fail to realize is that change starts with us. Every single one of us has the power to create change in our lives and the world around us. It starts with a single choice, a single decision. And that decision can be as small as voting.
Voting is one of the most important things we can do as citizens of this country. It's our way of having a say in the decisions that are made about our lives. It's our way of holding our elected officials accountable. And it's our way of ensuring that everyone's voices are heard. But too often, we don't exercise this power. We don't vote because we don't think our vote will make a difference. But if everyone thought that way, nothing would ever change.
The LGBTQIA+ community has made incredible progress in recent years, but there's still so much work to be done. Marriage equality may have been achieved, but there are still members of our community who are denied basic rights and protections simply because of who they are. That's why it's so important for us to vote. We need to elect officials who will fight for our rights and ensure that all members of our community are treated fairly and equally under the law.
Change doesn't happen overnight. It starts with every one of us making small choices that lead to big changes. So if you're feeling helpless and hopeless, remember that you have the power to create change in your life and the world around you. All it takes is a little bit of courage and a whole lot of hope.
