"Only the educated are free." #stayinformed- Epictetus The most important thing that I can do to achieve social justice in my own life is to remain an active and engaged member of my social atmosphere by participating in the democratic process which comprises the US political culture. More specifically, this means I must continue to stay abreast of what the major social issues are that plague my community, and gain as much knowledge as possible concerning the individuals who are interested in occupying a position of leadership, and make sure that the two aspects are in alignment with my perspective regarding the matters.
