EAL 030: The Power of Standing Together
So many people are wondering what they can do to make a difference in a world that is in so many crises, with so many revelations of corruption and opposition.
It is really easy to end up feeling powerless. "I am just one person. What can I do?"
The great news is that there are so many other people who feel like you do, and when we actually come together to stand for things that are important to us, we become exponentially powerful. When we add to that a willingness to listen to others and what is important to them, we can begin a conversation that finally works toward what serves the good of the whole. Let’s explore how that can happen in this week’s episode!
