WE NEED YOU TO ACT NOW!
We must believe that change will come. And it will come through each of us. We must believe that we can make a change and that our efforts are not worthless or in vain. I confess, we often feel like that proverbial ‘cog’ in the machine, not making much progress. But we are. And we can have a voice if we are willing to let it be heard.
