We are surrounded by the wrong voices.
People who tell us that our idea won’t work because it’s been tried before.
People who are talking when they should be listening.
People who condemn out of fear, ignorance, hate and intolerance.
People whose minds were never open in the first place.
People who feel powerful only when they make others feel small.
No one is forcing you to heed their call.
It’s a choice to turn off your inner voice of doubt and walk through your fear.
You can follow your passion.
You can do what’s right.
You can make a difference.
We can make a difference.
Let’s get started.
What better time than now?
