Becoming Better Citizens, part 2

I've been thinking a lot lately at what more I need to do (with all my free time...) to be a better citizen.
  • Stay up-to-date on U.S./World/Local news and government proceedings
  • Be familiar with the Constitution and other important political literature
  • Research candidates for elections that you can participate in and vote
  • Pray for you elected officials (whether you voted for them or not)
  • Read the Book of Mormon
  • Other ideas are in the presentation I posted a while ago (some reiterated above)
I can't imagine this list is exhaustive.  What do you do to be a better citizen?  Does anyone volunteer time in their community or other areas?  If so where and when?

First of all, I'm trying to find more free time. Next, I'm trying to sort out all of the political hullabaloo to find out what the real truth is. Other than that, I try to obey the law and be kind to people.
