You feel a stirring inside of you
A pulsating urge to go against the flow,
To do the right thing even when no one else does,
Creative options to make a difference in a world that encourages conformity and mediocrity rise up from the depths of your soul.
Your friends think you are crazy.
Join the club!
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” (Apple – Think Different Campaign)
I think I am crazy enough, how about you?
In 1955 a petite, 42 year old black woman boarded a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.
Because the back of the bus that segregated black passengers was full, she sat in the middle, undesignated section.
As the bus began to fill up, the bus driver pulled over and asked her to move to the back so a white passenger could sit down.
Rosa Parks refused. She wasn’t in the white section, she claimed.
And she refused to stand when Police Officers were called on board.
Not in defiance of the law, but of the discrimination and segregation.
That small act was the catalyst that began a series of events in the Civil Rights movement, introducing the country to the young Martin Luther King, Jr.
What differentiates defiance from world changer?
Rosa Parks was not a rebel. She was actually a very respected member of her church and community.
She was just crazy enough to act on something deep within her that so many others were probably thinking.
What if that crazy idea inside of you is the catalyst to start a movement?
What if your family and friends are just waiting for you to make the first move –
Someone has to be brave enough
Let’s do this!
What do you refuse to stand for?
Violence against women?
I refuse to stand by and see women exploited. I want to be part of a movement that encourages women to believe they can follow their dreams and not be held captive by their past. I want to encourage women to bravely change the way they view themselves in a new and empowering light.
I want to change the world,
Who wants to join me?
