I have struggled for years with finding balance regarding advocacy.  I want people to be aware of the myriad of needs my community has, I want to educate, I want to push for better everything, but yet, I do not want to be that over the top militant person fighting for every inch in this community.   I want to be whom God created me to be, a gal with a love for the people God has placed in my life, helping them to get to the next station in life.
