Words of Wisdom

Go Gently

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
~ Mahatma Gandhi

Changing the entire world may indeed be a challenge, but the great thing is that you don't have to! There are gentle changes you can make in someone's life every day with a kind word, some guidance, or a little moral support. Changes that shake their world, that make them believe that they can do something they never thought possible like enjoy poetry, or be the first in their family to go to college. On days when it seems as though you're barely making a dent, remember that small tremors add up — you may not feel them immediately but softly, gently, someone's world is going to become better because of you.

With something to think about . . .
