I agree with all of Natalie’s position. Sadly, if I didn’t have kids with chronic illness I am not so sure that I would be as active in civic engagement. I also lack the time and finding non biased news information for the truth is becoming harder and harder. I also think that the general thought of “my voice isn’t heard so why bother” is rampant. People DO care but feel they aren’t being heard. I do hope that by being active and involving my kids that they continue to be active as they get older.
