Be the Change ~ Inspire | Encourage | Share 

What a LOCAL empowering week this has been – watching a dear friend suffer from the sunset of breast cancer slowly taking her mother after a 15 year battle; experiencing the donation of a fully furnished mortgage free home to a deserving Military Veteran; gaining appreciation for marine life, food chains, life cycles and ecosystems at a local acquarium; experiencing green acts by a LOCAL entreprenurialist selling only environmentally friendly products; meeting a retired Wilmington firefighter proud to promote his squad and honoring his service; all followed by a bumper sticker tonight at an intersection on Pennsylvania Avenue screaming “BE THE CHANGE”. Everything does happen for a reason. Right?  Believe!

Come on North Delaware…LET’S BE THE CHANGE! How does one digest all the signals? You…Just DO it! Do the Impossible! Get INvolved! Live LIFE to the FULLEST!  Strive for the Best!  Don’t make excuses. Say your sorry and mean it! Be POSITIVE!
