Anger Into Activism

Wow!  I am looking back on my original stories and I can tell I was depressed when I wrote them.  Fortunately, I am feeling a lot better these days.  My doctor has added a new antidepressant to the ones I am already taking and I have more energy and focus, so I am using it to try to make the world a better place instead of just feeling sorry for myself.   Right now I am fighting to change the electricity laws in my home state of Texas so that people living at or below the poverty line, like me, don't have to choose between keeping their lights on and putting food on the table.  We now pay the highest electricity rates in the nation in Texas, and most people say that will never change because the energy companies here are so powerful.  I say the energy companies haven't met me yet!

I agree that the energy companies charge way too much for their services. There are so many people in this world that barely make minimum wage and I know that"s not enough for all the basics for living that people need. I wish you well on your Activism, I think you will be great. Another thing that bothers me is that I live in the South, and it still amazes me that we have to pay for air at gas stations...isn't air suppose to be free?
