Because you can.
Each person has agency, the capacity to choose.
No one is born a revolutionary or a linchpin or an artist. You become one.
Of course, it’s not for everyone, but you’re kidding yourself if you think it’s not for you.
Not enough time, money, resources, is the story we tell ourselves to keep us off the hook. It’s another form of hiding. What can you do? What will you do?
Conditions will never be perfect. As the tide rises (or falls) so do the rest of the boats.
Not everyone sees what you see, knows what you know, believes what you believe. So, start.
Yesterday was the best time to begin. Today is the next best thing. (Someday is not a day of the week.)
Will it stick? Not at first. Little by little, drip by drip, we bring more dignity, respect and opportunity for those in need. We give our projects away, building more trust and attention in the process.
Because if we want to go fast, we go alone. But if we want to go far, we go together.
You have more power than you can imagine. Think big. Now bigger. Go. Do. Make a ruckus.
