The best statement on change I’ve seen was on Santa Monica beach in California.
No. It wasn’t this…
It was this…
A respectful mock cemetery for US service personnel killed (when I visited) in Iraq. It’s run by Veterans for Peace. They were selling T-shirts with a photo of the scene on the front, and this quotation on the back.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
It’s from US cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead (who I’ve mentioned before in connection with the London riots). Good advice, though tiring to live up to. Sometimes you just want to have a pint or watch The Bridge on TV.
(And now – plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose – you can visit the other members of the Loose Bloggers Consortium for their views on change. Just scroll down the right hand column.)
