OK... So I've been on this "Do Something" kick. I even wrote about it on the Now In Session Page. I figure that since the media and "Black Leaders" claim to be writing our agenda (the details I was not informed of), we may as well set up a personal agenda to make our families and communities safer.
This blogging thing is a great way to keep myself accountable for the things I say I want to do. Maybe it was that dag gone Kid President's call for me to Be Awesome (I love that kid) or the fact that every holiday or occasion turns Twitter into the Barlett's book of quotations, where everyone quotes from this guy or that woman depending on the day. These quote blitzes always leave me wondering what site these Twitter Folks got it from because the tweeets before and after generally are filled with ratchet and Melancholy...
So today, I declared that I would tweet a book recommendation everyday. It kind of got some steam. That's pretty cool, right? It doesn't take much to get people to follow your ideas, it just takes 140 characters:
And That's all it took... So I am now asking it of you. Go to Twitter and recommend a book a day for February with the hashtag #BHM2013ReadThis. You can also recommend a movie (#BHM2013WatchThis), A song (#BHM2013HearThis), A Factoid (#BHM2013KnowThis) or a Website/Blog (#BHM2013SearchThis)
Now why would I do this? Why would I bother? Because gathering information is vital to the growth of all people. Information distribution across the masses is worthwhile and vital to the growth of a people. It's how imagination and ideas are born
So there it is. Part of my 2013 Action Items. What are you going to do to make 2013 better?
