I often hear, “but I’m just one person, what can I do?” in reply to my pleas, sometimes my badgering, for help with promoting or being an advocate for health, disability, mental health, religious or social issues.
One person can do a lot. One voice can be the start of a new movement. There’s a huge movement going on right now that started with one person, Lisa Copen of Rest Ministries. It is the Invisible Illness Awareness Week.
One person can accomplish a lot. Think of Col. Sanders and his restaurants, Kentucky Fried Chicken now called KFC. Starting with one person and one store, these stores are known worldwide.
If you have something to say that is important to you, do it! Blog about it, send emails, write letters and spread the word!
