(from Dictionary.com)
Any action taken, no matter how minuscule or mundane, or inaction taken has an effect on all of us.  Whether it’s pepper-spraying a group of peaceful non-violent protestors or turning the corner vises to the opposite direction thus making them awkward to pick up, anything one does has an impact.
Later, I’ll discuss consequences.
