The price of gas here in Southern California has, in some places, dropped to as low as four dollars and nine cents a gallon and in some places even lower. We breathed a collective sigh of relief and felt the world reclaim balance and justice. Compared to almost five dollars a gallon, these current prices seem pretty darn good.
But hold on a minute. Let's remember not too long ago when we were outraged by these same prices which now seem so much more bearable than those even more outrageous prices.
How easy it is to think we are well off just because things aren't as horrific as they used to be.
Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to stay angry if we want to remain agents of change.
