Passionate Change

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.

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.
