Someone should do something!  Something about war, racism, and homelessness, stop poverty, hunger, and end rape. 

Do something about man’s inhumanity to one another, bullying, animal cruelty, sexism, violence, and mental health.

Someone should do something to protect the environment, stop the polluting of the atmosphere and the poisoning the earth.  Someone should do something about corporate greed and the dwindling middle class. Someone should do something about the financial and insurance industries' controls.  Someone should do something about the problems of the world.

You’re not alone, I agree someone should do something.  

Some feel very deeply about the problems of the world; some folks get a lump in the throat and/or shed tears.  In our hearts and minds, someone bigger than ourselves, more capable, and competent will do something sooner or later.    

So while waiting for someone to come along, focus may turn to religion and God with prayers offered and meditation.  Desktop activists take stands from behind keyboards with requests to like post share or # to let someone know that they are not alone.  Monies are donated to charitable organization so that someone will use the funds for the greater good.  Still, the efforts aren’t enough.   

When will someone step up?  Great question!  Hmmm, you’re someone, right?  Why aren’t you stepping up?  You’re the one, you’re someone.  We need you.  The world needs more than your heartfelt empathy, it needs action.  Today!  Now!  “If not now, then when?  If not you, then who?’ - John F. Kennedy

As a species, extending ourselves for the purpose of good is a powerful and driving force for our survival. 

I am confident that you are the someone who can make a positive difference.  Even though you may hear an internal voice that says it’s all too big for me, and think it may not be easy, it will be worth it.  Nothing can resist the will of the good in people.  You can and must do something. 


Thank you.

Ask AC

Got a question? AskAC.nohoartsdistrict@gmail.com

AC is an East Coast transplant who became rooted in the SFV.  “Yup”, AC said “I found a place in North Hollywood years ago, and though I’ve traveled the world over this is the place I call home.  Well, also Massachusetts because that’s where I was born.  I think of  Hawaii as my second home, but I don’t own property there so maybe I can’t count that.  I was going to say Paris, at first cause I am very comfortable there, but then, you know I’m American and I don’t want to be too pompous.  So, yeah, I guess the San Fernando Valley is home.”

A street scholar, majoring in hard knocks and common sense, AC, attended night school receiving a high school diploma.  With a thirst for knowledge, AC continued education included many, many on line courses and seminars from selling beets at your local farmers market and how to shuck clams to Introduction to wine.

AC has been offering advice to everyone, whether they ask for it or not.  At times AC’s advice has been met with animosity and physical threats.  None the less AC preservers.   “It’s my calling” says AC, who urges readers to send in their confounding queries; “If you want advice (in the words of the 45th President), ‘what do you have to lose’, Ask AC?”

What makes AC’s columns unique is that it feels like you are getting advice from a friend, a person you can rely on for lively, no-nonsense feedback.  Ask AC is the best advice columnist by a Los Angeles mile."

AC resides in North Hollywood has two children, is an animal lover and has an active social life.  An adventure sport enthusiast, writer, performer, corporate baby, and community volunteer.  AC devotes time to family, community and in the service of others.
