Amnesty International's Day of Action for Darfur

The day was actually yesterday, but thankfully Kevin over at Slant Truth had an informative post with plenty of advice and helpful links. Please go read it.

Kevin included this quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:
The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people
What many good people forget -- or never learned -- is that we have a lot more power to make positive change happen than we assume. This power can be exhibited and effective in small individual actions that become large when we are joined by many other good people.

Often we don't see the impact because that impact is in the reduction of harm rather than in some dramatic to-the-rescue moment. But if we keep chipping away at the harm done by others, we are as powerful as the rain water that nourishes us and our environment.

Yep, and that's why I think these Days of Action are important. If all you can do is blog about them, it still helps.

Thanks for blogging about this.
