You've heard the adage, "It takes only one person to create change." Well, that's kind of bullshit. It takes actually a lot of one persons to make a difference; it takes a group, a protest, a parade's worth of people. And to rally that type of support, it takes a cause. That's what it comes down to, simply having a reason. When the people have a reason, they will rally around it. And suddenly, everyone matters.
The cause we are talking about is anti-GMO, and the local organization creating a movement is GMO Free Florida. If you have been living under a giant corn kernel, "GMO" means "genetically modified organism." It means your food is being messed with, and instead of sitting back and reading about it online, GMO Free Florida comes together every month to work toward a solution. The meeting isn't just the best opportunity ever to connect with like minded anti-GMOers. It's also a chance to make a real difference and help plan upcoming events. Being one person ain't so bad after all.
Meetings start at 7 p.m. the first Thursday of every month. Admission is free. Meetings are at the Atrium Centre Property Management Co., located at 4801 S. University Drive in Davie. Visit gmofreeflorida.org.
