Margaret Mead Never Doubt Quote as Reminder of People Power

One of my favorite Heartful Art creations, always a beautiful gift for teachers, service volunteers, and retirees, and people making a positive difference, this famous quote speaks a timely message.

Contemplate the words of famous anthropologist, Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Now, as so many people from so many places rise up to speak their minds, this affirmational and motivational quote is apropos for our time. Margaret Mead's words can act as a catalyst for conversation.

I encourage myself and all of us to listen to each other. Share what we believe. Speak our truth. Kindly. In the way of Gandhi: "Be the change you wish to see in the world." We are the world. We can make a positive difference in our own lives, in the lives of others, and in our world.
