Advocacy/Activism 41st Good word
I never thought of these words as good words. And then I realize, it is my thinking that is changing and I need to take in the full meaning of these two words.
The meaning of Advocacy/Activism
I thought I knew what these words meant. I thought both words were political and Advocacy, meant lobbing and Activism meant yelling, screaming and marching.
Now, I am finding new meanings for these two words that we say.
Advocacy means: Support, Encouragement, Backing, Sponsorship, Promotion, Activism
Activism means: Involvement Engagement, Crusading, Politicking, Do-gooding, Direct action, Political action, Social action.
Advocate for you and me

If advocacy is not for Peace
Wars will never cease
If our advocacy is not for truth
The truth will not be told
When I thought of the word advocacy
I always thought of it politically
Activism as marching, screaming and yelling
Now I am learning new meanings
For old words
I have learned that advocacy
Is standing up for what is right
And activism is to guard that right
Even if you have to fight
Advocacy for learning from Adversity— Roger Godell
