The world needs more you in it.
In her speeches, Marian Wright Edelman, founder of Children’s Defense Fund, reminds us that a lot of people these days are still waiting for Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa or Mahatma Gandhi to come back—but they are gone. We are it. It is up to us now. It is up to you. More than ever before, our world needs more goodness, more kindness, more caring, more action, more “you” in it.
John F. Kennedy said that one person can make a difference, and every person must try. What if each of us really tried? What if each of us spontaneously decided that, one by one, we really can be better world we wish for?
