Change the World
A comment that could apply to the work of I&R and I&A Specialists...
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
One Instant, One Person
"To save the life of a single child, no effort is superfluous. To make a tired old man smile is to perform an essential task. To defeat injustice and misfortune, if only for one instant, for a single victim, is to invent a new reason to hope."
- Elie Wiesel, Nobel Laureate Writer
"f I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain. If I can ease one life the aching, or cool one pain, or help one fainting robin up to his nest again, I shall not live in vain."
- Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
"Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day."
- Sally Koch
