From Linda Hill’s facebook conversations with Stanley Daniels, and Janice M.
I received this meme from Inclusive Leader Stanley Daniels today: “When people ask ‘What do you do?’ Answer: ‘Whatever it takes.’
As I was reflecting on that message, I received this quote from Janice M: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Mead).
Then as I read their facebook contributions further, I realized that both Stanley and Janice were asking the same question which Stanley stated very clearly:
“How much good can a person do within systems set up to oppress people?”
