Be the Change!

In a world where we see many injustices, inequities, and despair.

A world that at times feels heavy, out of control, and out of hand.

When at times it seems easier to throw in the towel and call it quits, I beg you not to give in.

be the change

I ask you to believe that we can all be part of the change we need.

You see, it may not be about changing the whole world, but rather starting from within.

Within you, me, us, we hold that power. Yes, I do believe!

Where do we start?

We start with the people closest to us, our circles – those who we can reach.

It’s about the conversations we have, the moments we spend together, and the smiles and laughter we share.

It’s about coming together, sharing who we are, and understanding how connected we all are.

These moments matter, no matter how small or simple they may seem.

What happens within our homes, our families, our partners, our children.

Within our circle of friends, our community, our neighbors.

It all matters!

What we do within these circles have a ripple effect that will indeed create the change we need.

We just have to believe.
