"Anybody can be an agent of change...

People think that if they can't tackle all the world's problems and make it all better overnight, there's no purpose. I totally disbelieve that. I believe that every action really does contribute to change.

The power that each and every one of us has to decide whether we want to be participants in creating the world we live in, or we choose - and this is also a choice, that we pretend isn't - we CHOOSE to do nothing....

Believe me, there are other people who will step into that gap, take your power and use it to accomplish what they want."

~Jody Williams, Nobel Peace Prize winner
