Get Involved, America!
is an extension of host Vernon Grossman-Orr's desire to help make things better for others. Vernon loves America and the opportunities this country has afforded him and his family. He, like nearly every parent and parent-to-be wants to leave even greater future opportunities to his children and grandchildren, and you will hear him speak passionately about that throughout the show.
Vernon believes that in life, you choose either to be participant or a spectator, part of a solution or part of a problem. He thinks that we have become obsessed with "watching" rather than participating, that we've let things get out-of-hand. The solution is to get off our butts, roll up our sleeves and choose to make a difference. Even small efforts of many people can have a tremendous result.
So the focus of the show is to encourage listeners to TALK about problems and ideas for solutions, but also to become part of the solution and GET INVOLVED!
