Just to start off before I get to my first blog spot, I really feel like Urgent Evoke is onto something. It is an encouraging, easily accessible, and highly networkable community that I believe will inspire thousands, if not tens of thousands. It's a grand idea, and I'm proud to support it from the get-go and be apart of something greater than myself.
And that leads me into my favorite point in our evaluation of the "secret code". While all of the statements presented in Exhibit A point us in the right direction, the one that stands out most for me is Netbillion Paul Polak: "go to where the action is." I cannot agree with this anymore than I already do. To have a motivation, or desire to change something occurs from a problem that is presented to oneself or a group of people. Personally, from my area in the United States, there is not anything really on a monumental scale that I can change with lots of action. Of course it's a "nest" of some sort to me; to encourage me to start small and build up in invoking change throughout the world. Maybe that family in the homeless shelter downtown can be placed in a house after I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, collect the supplies, and build that house. But to do that, I have to go where the action is.
I have to physically go out, and move myself into a position where there are others that need help in the community. Not necessarily be all up on those individuals, but to be proximal enough to them that I feel their obstacles, challenges, and sorrow with life.
We as a world cannot change the problems on other continents from our comfy homes and suburb streets. We have to come together with those from different countries, identify a possible obstacle, and go where the action is.
