My first action of 2017 was to subscribe to the New York Times online. Instead of complaining or poking fun at the Bad News now so prevalent, I decided to spend $11/month to support what little Free Press we have left in this country. This is so simple to do, but financially supporting this paper (and it's 1,000 real, impartial journalists) and becoming more informed may well be the biggest way I can make the world a little better this year. Powerful corporations that control and distort so much of our media will lose their influence over my thinking.
