The current division among Americans over the state of our union is challenging all of us. We’ve even made a separation in time, as we fondly recall our lives before the election, in comparison to our lives now. The feeling of helplessness in the face of the devastating changes proposed is weighing heavily on most of us. We repeatedly wonder what we can do as mere citizens. Many of us have joined the resistance, and are working with various groups to help increase our influence. We’ve marched in protests across the nation and beyond. We’ve called our representation to voice our concerns.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. -Barrack Obama
But the sense of powerlessness prevails. The news media has become a central hub of information. We’re awakened, interested, and prepared to fight for our America. We’re becoming all too aware of how important it is to cross reference all reported information to make certain it’s truth. Many of us are still reeling over the phony story reported as fact, known as the Bowling Green Massacre. It never happened. Don’t take my word for it. Do a quick search to verify in more than one mainstream media article. In 2017, it’s imperative we hold the media accountable for what it reports. It’s up to us to put forth the effort and do our fact checking.
Spreading the truth is how we resist the lies. We’re the ones who can do this. The internet has become a political tool in every possible way. We, as citizens, can use it to persuade the media to report only facts. When we find lies reported as truth, we can respond to the article with facts. We can let the reporter and news outlet know we won’t stand for lies and propaganda. We can send letters to editors. It’s up to us to do this.
Together, we are America. As citizens, our strength is formidable when we unify to accomplish a goal. Together, we’re fierce. Our collective influence is incredibly powerful. We decide what media we consume and what we reject. When we work together to hold the media outlets accountable for their reporting, we force them to report facts. Facts expose lies. We are the ones who are going to save our America. The heroes we’re looking for are all around us.
