I am a very caring person who loves nature, animals, and children. I am very upset that these 3 things have fallen short on the list of "priorities" for our politicians. I sign every petition i can, but i would like to do more with what free time i have. I would like to volunteer my time to "clean up" or "serve"- whatever i can as close to my area as possible. I want to make a difference, since the elected "decision makers" of our country show no interest, it is up to us.
