What is YOUR role?

A comment +Samara Sonmor wrote on the original post:

 The problems are complex, but so are we. We need all of these things happening at once.

We need to write new stories, we need to read new stories. We need to struggle and fight the status quo – and what it has made of us. We need compassion and intellect and morality and justice and protest and education and resistance; and above all, we need to remember we each have different parts to play in changing the systems of oppression.

I've ascertained my role in this shining, shifting, unscripted chaos, unwilling and unprepared for it as I am; and my part, it seems, is to reach out and ask others:  what is your  role?
Because we need you all.

So there it is. Thank you, +Richard Harlos.  A most eloquent comment.

The credo of the International Biogenic Society states the following:

We believe that our most precious possession is Life.
We believe we shall mobilize all the forces of Life against the forces of death.
We believe mutual understanding leads toward mutual cooperation; that mutual cooperation leads toward Peace; and that Peace is the only way of survival for mankind.
We believe that we shall preserve instead of waste our natural resources, which are the heritage of our children.
We believe that we shall avoid the pollution of our air, water and soil, the basic preconditions of life.
We believe that we shall preserve the vegetation of our planet: the humble grass which came 50 million years ago and the majestic trees which came 20 million years ago, to prepare our planet for mankind.
We believe that we shall eat only fresh, natural, pure, whole foods, without chemicals and artificial processing.
We believe that we shall lead a simple, natural, creative life, absorbing all the sources of energy, harmony and knowledge, in and around us.
We believe that the improvement of life and mankind on our planet must start with individual efforts, as the whole depends on the atoms composing it.
