Have the courage to move beyond mere discussion and act. Encourage and help others use their strengths. Live in a way that challenges others to reach for more and unlock the unlimited possibilities for positive change. Be a visionary! Take the first step even when others are content standing still in mediocrity."

- Elizabeth Stecher (Inspiring Children)
