Life, Love & Photography :: We are the change

 

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” President Barack Obama’s Feb. 5 2008 Speech, Chicago.

We are the change! Acknowledging this big truth must be followed by action, taking a step to do something each day.
