What can *I* do?

Post by Caroline » Tue Mar 30, 2004 3:49 pm

I am so frustrated! I am furious! I am sad and confused and so angry about what the Bush administration is doing in Haiti. I dispise this government and the mass atrocities they are commiting around the world. I talk to people about it every day. I bring the subject up and tell the truth about what the U.S. has done to Haiti's democratically elected leader. I talk about it on the bus, I print out things from this forum and other news sources (the honest ones, rare as they may be). And my room mate and I have started having women's groups to talk about what the U.S. government is doing. But, no matter how much I talk about it, call my representatives, pass out news articles, etc... I just don't feel like I'm doing a damn thing that matters. I still feel so freaking impotent! I am thinking about going to Haiti and scream in the faces of those U.S. Marines, "Shame on YOU! SHAME ON YOU!

What can I do? Does anything I do really make any difference? I mean, short of blowing you-know-who's brains out, is there anything that one person can do that will change anything?

Any ideas are surely welcome.


Thank you!

Marilyn -- thank you so much! Its really good to know I'm not alone and that perhaps the things I do, no matter how insignificant they seem, might actually matter!

Keepin the Faith!
