What can I do? That question is asked in a number of ways. Sometimes, it is an actual question. Sometimes, it is a challenge to be offered an opportunity for action. At other times, it attempts to serve as an excuse for those who want to claim to be weak and powerless. Here, I'll try to offer genuine answers to a serious asking of the question.
I am often criticized as being too political, but the fact is that the political has gotten to the point that it even permeates some of our prayer lives! So, we need to do something. There are indeed those who would mess with our basic civil and human rights, and some will do so in the name of what they think are their own rights.
Can we see where we might find things to do in the face of this?
