The activism of the members in the Santa Cruz community is second to none. I went out at about 730 PM to get some dinner with my daughter and what do I see? A woman named Sherri with a sign that read "Peace begins with us" and other fellow community members out by the Town Clock on North Pacific Ave. protesting what some are saying could become the Third World War.
I have never lived in a more active community. Whether it be political or social the people of Santa Cruz openly and regularly voice their concerns and opinions about the matters happening in the world.
This community has taught me to not only use my voice for something I believe in, but to also not be afraid.
"If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything". What do you stand for?
