Oh, YES! Pilgrims of peace such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Charlie Chaplin, John Lennon, Lincoln, Mother Teresa - these and more showed us that each of us counts.
John F Kennedy took Lincoln's legal works and created a new society where segregated buses, etc... no longer are acceptable social norms.
We send our children and our grandchildren overseas to fight for freedom, we celebrate the real royalty of the United States - our veterans and yet each of us has a voice and can be a vehicle for unity and peace.
The pilgrims of peace throughout the world, throughout the ages, have all been persecuted - you will not be unscathed. The world will fight back but don't let go of what is true, what is right, what is just.
One voice counts. One life, one day can make a world of difference. It is up to all of us in any manner possible to always speak kindness, always seek understanding, always fight for equality.
