Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have. ~ Margaret Mead
Do you remember the ALS #icebucketchallenge? I bet you do. It’s hard to forget something that completely took over our social media channels like it did. It’s hard to forget that in a matter of weeks, people banded together to collectively donate $115 Million dollars to a disease we weren’t even thinking about the week before.
I love this quote and the ice bucket challenge stands as modern day proof that Margaret Mead was right. Government can’t change the world. Churches can’t change the world. Schools can’t change the world. Only a few caring people can do that.
We can do it just like Margaret modeled for us in her life.
She valued understanding others, more than being understood. That’s the key to changing the world.
She was one of the first female social entrepreneurs.
She cared enough to understand the needs of another and do something about it. She insisted that human diversity was a resource, not a handicap, that all human beings have the capacity to learn from and teach each other. Her delight in learning from others showed in the way she was able to address the public with affection and respect.
What if you listen to her today?
What if you realized it’s up to you to create the change that’s important to you? No one else is going to do it.
I care about supporting women in living the stories of their hearts, like Margaret Mead did.
What do you care enough about to change?
When we decide we care, we will change this world for the better.
To more love!
