The Change

What seems like a lifetime ago, I looked around The World, My World, and saw the ugliness of how we hurt one another; causing pain, despair, even death.

And I was devastated.

This was not The World I wanted to leave to My Children, to the Seventh Generation.

But how could it change?

Who could lead that change, The Change?

I knew it would require legions of people to impact the billions on the planet; legions of Powerful People.

And I was only one.

But I am one with a voice, with my own Power, with the ability to reach out to another in relationship:

And then another…..

And another…

While those I engage in relationship reach out to another….

And another…

Still others I don’t even know are doing the same thing.

And so it is that we create The Change.

It’s the idea of throwing pebbles in the pond and the ripples reaching out and out and out….

While others throw their pebbles, ripples reaching out and out and out….

Eventually, our ripples will meet.  Together they will set the entire pond into motion.

And so With Respect was born.

It is how I create ripples.

It is how I do my part in The Change.

I hope you will join me in setting the whole pond – the Whole World – in motion, in being part of The Change.
