The right time to pay attention to what’s going on in your neighborhood, city, state, country and world is NOW. No matter who you are, where you are, or how old you are – you need to start paying attention to what’s really happening in the world. But let’s be honest, being up to date on ALL current events is extremely difficult, even when we have constant news updates at the touch of our fingers, 24/7 – so why is it so difficult? Here are a few reasons:
- Not paying attention
- We don’t care enough to read / listen
- There are a million other “messages” flooding our eyes and ears – we’re multitasking and missing the things that can/should be important
- We’re not using the right tools
With tensions as high as they are in the world (ISIS, Brexit, Syrian Civil War, Refugees, Islamaphobia, Starvation/failing economy in Venezuela, Nuclear threats from North Korea, etc.), and in America itself (mysoginist/racist/zenophobic/greedy president, fight for equality in race/gender/sexual orientation/etc., healthcare uncertainty, etc.), it’s pertinent we’re aware of as many facts and opinions (even those opinions from the opposing side from where you stand) as possible.
