Quote of the Day – Activism an Internal Drive

By Heather Kallevig

If you ever feel a sudden fit of activism or even an ongoing compulsion to make the world a better place, you’re not alone.  Whatever sparks your interest and motivates your involvement, activism is what makes the world a better place.  Take part online, in person, and every chance you get.  Every activist has felt this way at one point or another.  It’s an internal drive, and you’re not alone…

“..An activist is someone who cannot help but fight for something.  That person is not usually motivated by a need for power or money or fame, but in fact is driven slightly mad by some injustice, some cruelty, some unfairness, so much so that he or she is compelled by some internal moral engine to make it better.”
