Question of the Day

Suggested by Katecontinued: "I just saw this question and thought of what I wrote yesterday about Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues and how much she has accomplished with this play. … Do you believe one person can change the world?"

I guess my answer's pretty obvious; if I didn't, this blog wouldn't exist. Which isn't, by the way, a delusion of grandeur—just a recognitition that we all have the capacity to change the world merely by putting out ideas that someone who's in the right place at the right time may implement, or by being kind to a person who will someday change the world when they most needed kindness to carry on, or any one of a million ways each of us can contribute to changing the world for better (or worse) by being engaged actors within it.
