Greetings on this first day of 2009 - wow, we've gone through a lot over the last 12 months, I truly am looking forward to all this next year has to offer.

To that end I offer you AMPLIFY. Brought to you by the folks at Advocates for Youth, AMPLIFY is their newest foray giving voice to youth on current issues. The power to create CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN is already evident with our President-elect. This new online community is aimed at motivating youth to take a stand, to get involved, to make a difference. Links such as ACT, IN THE CULTURE, ISSUES, CAMPAIGNS, run the gamut from pop culture and media to creating your own grassroots campaign.

For instance, the IN THE CULTURE blogs are written by youth for youth. The blogging is witty and sexy (try doing that while making a point) and above all, informative. The writing didn't jump me, it actually gave me a different point of view to consider, which in my case is hard to do.

Overall, there are maybe too many links and issues, it can almost be so overwhelming you don't know where to start.......kinda like being in the ice-cream store with 31 flavors looking dead atcha and not knowing what to choose. So I say, be daring, sample each, and I am positive you will find something you'll like, and heck, it's sugar free!!

Blessings and abundance for the New Year!
