It is important to take a step back and reflect once in a while.  Enjoy this quote and see if you can find a way to relate it to your life.

 

 “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

 

Margaret Mead built a career as a cultural anthropologist.  She received her bachelor’s degree from Barnard College in New York City and her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Columbia University.  She was also elected as the president of The American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1975.  She was very controversial in her work as she studied the dynamics of different cultures during a time of little diversity and equality.  In 1976 she was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in January of 1979, shortly after her death.
