You can contribute to current events around the world by getting off the couch and buying a plane ticket tonight! Choose a very unstable country, bring your own flag, and pack a sleeping bag. Leave as soon as possible so that you can join the revolution while it is still young. You can leave your mark on the country’s history by waving your flag and shouting for liberty and freedom. This is how you help an uprising.
Or…you can leave the protesting to the local citizens, and instead spread the word online. Social media sites are great for starting campaigns to support people overseas. Spread the word to your friends and family first and they could pass along the news. You have the power to influence those around you and that power is only a few clicks away.
If you feel that social media is not enough, you can speak to your local officials in office. You can appeal to the state governor or a congressman from your state. By calling these people and voicing your opinion, you are helping them to know what is important to the American people and it reminds them to focus on important international affairs.
America is blessed to be a country where its people can voice their opinion and determine which policies are made. The important decisions may be in the hands of politicians, but it is the American people who must guide these political figures. Show your gratitude for a representative government by getting involved and reminding the policy makers about revolutions around the world that are worth fighting for and worth supporting.
Go and change the world through your voice. Exercise your freedom of speech, and influence those who have the power to support worthy protests. Sometimes it is the voices of foreigners that determine the outcome of a country’s revolution.
