The Tipping Point 

A good book, The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell is also a beacon of light in these dark times. Remember that it is in precisely by focusing on the little things--like farejumpers and graffiti to clean up violence in the metros and cities--that the big problems are defeated.

Find your little thing to focus on, and make it so. For some, it will start by planting a tree in a move to save the environment. For others, it will be giving an extra dollar tip to someone with a lower salary than yours in a move to combat classism. For others, it might be taking one extra shower each week (see environment, above). Whatever it is, start now, and it will grow. Your effort may be the tipping point to a much needed societal change.
