When I write here about changing the world - when I write here about making a difference, I'm not suggesting for a moment that one person should do it all.  If we look to the biggest news story this month in Ferguson, Missouri you can see a very good example.  It doesn't easily boil down to just one problem and it didn't come about from just one person.  Things can and will get better there though and the change will come about faster if they all work together.

There have been are great women and men who have done marvelous deeds over the years and there continue to be such people.  We know their names usually, but sometimes it is strangers making a difference.  Just about every marvelous deed though involved more than one person.  It may have been the idea of one, but others agreed and jumped on board.  Together they made it happen.  Together is such a great comforting word.  We are not alone when we are together!

It's not always a team thing.  Sometimes many people just happen to have the same idea at about the same time. The great Henry Ford said it best: "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success."
