Jason Mraz checked in on his blog at Blogspot on Tuesday (October 26), talking about the following Tuesday’s elections and his environmental activism. The singer songwriter tells readers:
This year I found both the time and resources to try things outside of my comfort zone – Like traveling to Louisiana to witness the devastation and learn ways I could help take better care of our environment. Not before that trip did I connect voting with being green. It was a powerful epiphany. Some applauded my choice to travel there. Others criticized it.
Regardless of who says what – I don’t take it personally. I thank those people for responding at all. Criticism proves they listened (to some degree). I can recall a time when the demographic my age were considered slackers. I don’t see a trace of that anymore. I only sense do-gooders everywhere. In fact, it’s hard to keep up with all the progress! (Especially the technology – which is but a reflection of the user’s ability.)
