Power to the People
This graphic shows the words used during the April 12 English leaders' debate.
The larger the word appears in the illustration, the more often it was spoken during the debate. (Wordle.net)
The Canadian Federal Election is coming up on May 2nd.
Remember where the roots of democracy come from.
Realize how fortunate we are (even though not a perfect system) we have the right to vote and are structured by democracy.
To ignore and not participate in this right is dismissing the beauty of this opportunity that is not available to all humans in the world.
Ignornace and inaction are not bliss in this respect.
Pull up your socks, get informed and vote on May 2nd!
"The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival"
"Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be"
-Sydney J. Harris
Democracy is a system made up and governed by the people, not puppets - the social issues matter...be an active citizen in your country...in the world...vote...because you can....
With intention & purpose always.
