When you watch the evening news and witness the terrible atrocities, crimes and events from around the globe, you have a choice.

You can shake your fist at the screen in outrage.

You can bemoan the loss of values in society.

You can shiver in fear, believing that it’s only going to get worse.


You can remember that you were placed here to make a positive difference.

You can shine your light in dark places.

You can pledge again that you will never be controlled by your fears, but will march into the world with boldness to be an encourager, a leader, an inspirer.

We’re not victims of our circumstances.

We’re influencers of them.

What are you going to choose?
