I, like many others, have that dream Martin had, believe for the best the way Mandela did, and have faith enough in mankind to believe a change in discrimination can be accomplished.
Inspirational people, movers and shakers in America's history come in all color, sex, and nationality. Having a big name or money makes no one more of an influencer than the boy next door. Just get out and make an influence, be a positive change in another's life. Make a difference and become a viable Bead in history. Even if it is in the life of one person. .Paula
