I have often wondered what it is about being a human that allows us to act in ways that are totally out of keeping with the values we say we hold dear. What is it that shuts us down when we know we should take action? What does that really say about us?
To me, the picture at the top of the post says more than any words I can write. So, I’m simply going to encourage you to watch for opportunities in your life where you can respectfully say something to counter gossip or misinformation, where you can step in and make a difference for someone, where you could write an email and voice concerns, or otherwise get engaged with the world around you to make things a little better.
Sometimes, it only takes one person to spark a movement.
