So many of us yearn for world peace, the end of poverty and homelessness, and universal health care. This is the stuff of hopeful dreams, and many of us spend our days doing what we can to move closer to these ideals. Of course, political obstacles, funding shortfalls, and bureaucratic challenges often stymie our best efforts. But along with our noble pursuits, it seems so important to remember that meaningful change in our world also occurs incrementally, one small step at a time. Famed anthropologist Margaret Mead once noted, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Andrew Sucov, believes just that.
