"I want to be an engineer." "What advice would you give other engineers?" "If you build a house that collapses, you’re going to get arrested. So you need to keep using the pendulum to make sure that everything is straight. Also, your cement mix has to be strong. You also need to be careful with the builders that you hire, or they will steal the cement from you.” "What sort of building would you build?" "A factory that makes new books, so that everyone can have new books for school. All of my books are old and have writing in them."
For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.
For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job.
He is an activator. Find your lane of productive activism and rock out on it no matter what it is. As long as it’s a shift for positive changes big and or small. Whether it’s assisting on teaching and spreading the good knowledge on somethings that someone may not have been hipped to. Or just walking someone across the street helping with groceries. Or just being a considerate neighbor and making sure folks are sincerely alright in general.
These are actions of Activators which results in action within activism of not just being a good person but doing good shit. .
Good things happen everyday in every way. Don’t discount anyone’s Activator Spirit.
