It will take more than

One man. One woman.

For change to happen.

It takes me. It takes you.

Publicly renounce racism.

Challenge gender stereotypes.

Disavow homophobia.

Soothe our broken planet.

It takes me. It takes you.

For change to happen.

Raise your kids right.

Volunteer to right the wrongs in this country.

Work diligently to pay it forward.

Light the spark for someone who does not ask for it. Who needs it.

Do not give yourself an out.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
