I was so touched by what Lyric Kinard wrote in her most recent newsletter that I wanted to share it (with permission):
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
I have a simple message for you today. With turmoil and conflict everywhere, it is up to each of us to be the light, to be the good, to be the change. We can’t sit back in fear and wait. Nobody else is going to make it better for us.
Alone, we cannot change the whole world but we certainly can bring comfort and peace to one individual. Every small act of kindness makes a difference. If enough people do one small thing, and then do one more small thing, and one more – the world WILL change.
You are a quilter.
You are an amazingly creative and generous person.
What we do is not frivolous, it makes a difference.
How will you shine your light?
