Talk to our hurting neighbors, and help them

Quote from article:
"But what we really need is your voice. Too many people are sitting silently on the sidelines. Instead of hearing from the majority, instead of hearing from our community leaders, we hear only the extreme voices. We hear only the politics.
Any tear in the social fabric affects all of us. If we continue to allow the extreme voices to set the tone for our community, things will only get worse. Their negativism becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy."
