We are all change makers. Whether we’re researching cures for cancer, raising a family or showing kindness to someone – what we do, and how we do it, can create change in our world.
I’m often inspired by the change makers around me. They encourage me to dig a little deeper, and press on for change. Change that I feel is important and necessary.
Typically, we become passionate for change based on our own personal experiences. Emma Yang, a 12 year old, is a prime example of this. Read her inspiring story here.
The Legacy Project was featured on the blog of St. Paul Lutheran Church, as well as their October magazine, Journey. You can read the piece here.
The trailer for this movie on parent loss is very moving. The full length movie should be just as touching. http://dreamofthewoods.com/becoming-home/
Family Resources’ SafePath program held a luncheon yesterday to support its sexual violence survivor resources. It was a moving event.
Sexual violence causes change in its survivors and victims. Unwanted and undeserved change. Kelly McReynolds delivered the keynote address, titled “Learning to Live Again: A story of rebuilding after rape”. Her story is heartbreaking. Her healing is inspirational.
Every woman and man deserves a life free of violence. To stand with a survivor, say: I’m sorry that happened to you. It’s not your fault. I believe you. You are not alone. To seek help, call the SafePath crisis line at 866-921-3354.

Here’s another view of change from a parent’s perspective.
