informed or taking action?

Kathryn Manning, staff writer for “The Breeze,” makes a very valid point in her 2/18 editorial “Because I Said So: Child Soldier Awareness Week shows us we shouldn’t just be informed.”

We all know about various inhumanities and injustices, but being informed is far different than taking action to correct the wrongs. Manning points to Sarita Hartz (’02) who acted to make a difference and help heal the victims of injustice in Uganda as an example for all of us.

As Hartz points out in her “Be the Change” profile, “I just decided that if I wanted the world to be different, then I had to stop complaining and do something about it.”
