I remember the first time that I heard that one person can make a difference. I was still in high school. My English teacher was talking about the power of one. She said that all it takes is one person to take a stand against something that is very wrong; that wrongness offends everyone whether morally, ethically, or in plain old goodness. If one person turns away from taking a stand, then others will too. If one person makes a stand, then, again, others will as well.
It takes great courage to be a power of one. Our world history is full of those types of people – those who take a stand. What will you stand for today?
