Small Groups Changing the World

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead -

In spite of people worrying that the world is going to hell in a handbasket, good is still being done. Today one of the local community organizations sponsored a day of volunteering with projects all over Denver. We were at local school, where all the planting beds needed some love after a long summer. Mulch covers a multitude of sins in landscaping. So adults and kids together weeded, pruned, and spread mulch by the wheelbarrowful.

Did we change the world today? Probably not. Will parents and teachers notice the change on Monday, even if the 6th graders don't? Probably.

I'm good with that.
