I am often told that I am "too radical", that I can't make a difference, and that other individuals can't either. I will not and can not believe that, and will spend the rest of my life trying to make a difference. In that group yesterday, I saw a bit, well actually a lot, of me...and I felt at home.
Together, we can change the world...although I admit, it's going to take a little more time!
