One person can make a difference, and everyone should try. – John F. Kennedy
We live in challenging times. The negativity and vitriolic tenor of today’s political and social media climate are enough to discourage even the most optimistic among us. It is easy to evaluate any public situation and shy away from individual contribution. It is safe to keep to ourselves and avoid conflict.
The only way we are going to improve this climate for the children we serve is by each of us, as individuals, stepping up and making a difference. It starts with me . . . it starts with you. Yes, you have the responsibility to make a difference. If each of us takes ownership, if we stand up and own our behavior and our expectations, we can make a difference. One person is a voice in the choir . . . a voice for a more caring, civil, and loving approach to how we live our lives.
