This quote hit me right in the feels. Shortly before discovering this quote, a friend had recently compared the power of one rain drop to the power of an ocean of rain drops. As a Floridian I know to never underestimate the magnificent strength of the ocean. She conveyed this message to a large group of like minded women at an event that embodied the power of Margaret Mead’s quote and felt like the birth of an ocean.
You see this gathering began with one idea, shared via social media among friends. Women were asked if they wanted to help not hurt. To my surprise women responded without fear of publicly admitting that they indeed believe that peace is possible and not just a fluffy myth as perceived by many. At the event women spoke, planned and debated on the subject of peace, in an environment energized by belief and devoid of doubt. As deep as my personal belief in peace has always been I can honestly say loosing my faith felt like it could be as simple as turning a page. This one idea brought peace seeking women together,one by one like rain drops becoming an ocean of belief that would lead to action. Watching the evolution of this this movement has reassured my hope of the possibility of a future without war as well as given me a platform from where to act.
