Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the lightest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man
– Mahatma Gandhi –
Your voice matters. Your calm, non-violent voice makes a difference. I have written and said this hundreds of times and I will continue to say it, I have been a part of a small group of committed, non-violent, people who organized and removed a corrupt Mayor and council. We took control of our town. We showed up. We paid attention and worked together, even though we had VERY different political views. We were unlikely partners and accomplished amazing things.
You matter and your voice can change things. There are so many things that need our attention. Here are a few that need action at the moment. Your voice would be most welcome.
This picture was taken by Black Balsam Knob. We were part of a team that was carrying red spruce trees in to be planted by college students. We volunteered through the Pisgah Conservancy. So many ways to volunteer in our wonderful community.
