One song can spark a moment.
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest.
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship;
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea.
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation.
One sunbeam lights a room;
One candle wipes out darkness.
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits;
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom;
One heart can know what’s true.
One life can make the difference…
That difference starts with you.
In today’s complex, fast–paced world, it’s not uncommon to find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, confused, and powerless. Social problems seem intractable; political gridlock seems hopeless; financial stress is rampant, and all of these issues serve to magnify our own personal or professional problems. Sometimes it feels like too much to handle. “What can I do?” we ask. “I’m just one person!”
This new book, How One Person Can Make a Difference by BJ Gallagher & Steve Ruttenberg, is a surefire antidote to those feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness.
It brings to mind what you already know, but forgot: that one person CAN make a difference, one action CAN transform a relationship, one word CAN change the conversation.
