What seems like a lifetime ago, I looked around The World, My World, and saw the ugliness of how we hurt one another; causing pain, despair, even death.
And I was devastated.
This was not The World I wanted to leave to My Children, to the Seventh Generation.
But how could it change?
Who could lead that change, THE Change?
I knew it would require legions of people to impact the billions on the planet;
…legions of Powerful People.
And I was only one.
But I am one with a voice, with my own Power, with the ability to reach out to another in relationship:
And then another…..
While those I engage in relationship reach out to another….
Still others I don’t even know are doing the same thing.
The numbers grow…
I become legions.
I becomes we.
And so it is that we create The Change.
It’s the idea of throwing pebbles in the pond and the ripples reaching out and out and out….
While others throw their pebbles, ripples reaching out and out and out….
Eventually, our ripples will meet. Together they will set the entire pond into motion.
And so With Respect, LLC came to be.
It is how I create ripples; how WE create waves.
Through the tools, the writing, the training; I become The Change.
Touching lives, your life and yours, WE become The Change.
The momentum of rallies and marches, the energy of protests and vigils must move forward – moving into the “now what” – for The Change to take hold, to grow, to expand; to become.
It is up to us.
Please join me in setting the whole pond – the Whole World – in motion, in being part of The Change.
Check out my work. Share yours with me. Together WE are THE CHANGE.
Are you with me? Leave your comments; tell me what you have, what you need, how we can support and help one another to become (and expand) The Change.
