I would be the orange man.
To put it in simpler terms, I knew I was angry. I mean, I had to be angry. Bad stuff was happening. But that's all I thought about it. Bad stuff is happening, I should be mad. I wasn't sure why I should be angry because I never really looked into it. I never put too much thought into all the injustices occurring throughout the globe on a daily basis. It hadn't really affected me so it wasn't one of my biggest concerns. I knew it was something I had to think about, but I was also like, "Now is not the time, there will be another time for this!" The time is NOW!
I was always that quiet student in class that was quietly outraged by the social injustice in the past, and how it still continued to present times. I considered myself an activist, but I didn't really do anything at all. This ends now. East Villagers has changed my life dramatically. Now, I go on CNN.com as a daily habit in search of articles to read. Now, I listen to NPR, voluntarily. Now, I am much more aware of social injustice locally, and globally.
East Villagers is a stepping stone that will take me to places unimaginable. Things can only be better from here. I am excited to see where East Villagers will take me.
East Villagers is a boat, that we're all hopping on. So AHOY WE GO.
