Thank you. And exactly—I quite literally can’t do everything, or even close to everything, and man is that one giant understatement. Everyone should choose what is most meaningful for them and figure out how to get involved. That’s the only way I’ve made any progress at all, paring down the list and focusing just in a few places. Otherwise I would go right back to be paralyzed into complete inaction.

I’m going to write a follow-up / update piece this summer, so please share what you end up doing, your thoughts on it, why you chose what you chose.
