Quote

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Ideas

1

The only way to understand and to be understood is through genuine listening.
You have to form a relationship with those that you don't agree with, in order to hear and begin to understand and be understood.

If you never engage in difficult conversations with those that oppose you, neither side will ever be able to come closer with one another.

Hatred does not solve hatred.
It is only through kindness can we begin to make the changes in the problems that are around today.

It is the current or past behaviours that has lead to the current circumstances, and it is only going to be through changing how we've done things that we can make changes to the circumstances.

When something needs to be said, silence is just as bad as saying the wrong thing.
Even if you end up with your foot in your mouth for saying the wrong thing, at least you had your mouth open to try and say the right thing.

The first step to progress is action. With good intentions and action, we will eventually get to good outcomes.

But without either, we will never be able to progress.
