Can’t LIVE Without… Words that Move Us To Action

I don’t know about you but sometimes it is the words of others that continue to inspire me and motivate me to create the change I believe is needed in my own life and in the world. This week I am sharing a few of those inspiring words that keep me committed to social justice issues, help me push past fear and discomfort, give myself and others a second chance, move me to action, and are simply words I can’t LIVE Without.
