FREE BOOK: Be Inspired By Leaders of Social and Environmental Change!

My book of interviews with people around the world, “How Will You Create Positive Change” is FREE today through Friday, December 16th.

This is book one in the Up To You project. Inside you will find sixteen people from around the world have shared their stories of how they created positive change in their communities. Each interview shows how they took action, what obstacles they overcame, and advice on how anyone can be an active participant in creating a better world.


These agents of change are championing for human rights, education, health, environmental sustainability, ending violence, eradicating poverty, mentoring youth, improving their communities, and inventing products that create a better world. They are different genders, skin colors and ages who live in different countries and have different beliefs. What they share in common is taking action.

After reading this book you will be inspired to take action too! Use the resources inside to get started and create positive change!

WWYD? What Will You Do?

I was browsing and found some inspiring and disturbing articles.

INSPIRED! A breath of fresh air or at least fresher than before will be felt now that the EPA “announced new protections from mercury pollution from power plants on Wednesday, December 21, 2011″. 

As a proponent of clean air, land and water this makes me happy. It is a step in the right direction. As long as we use electricity from toxic substances there will be pollution. One day I would love a world where everything is sustainable and the planet is clean. It will probably not happen until  my great great great grandchildren are here, but I am willing to speak my voice and take actions to ensure a clean future does happen. Read more: Pass on the good news.

DISTURBING! Should we go back to hanging people?  Well not literally, we can just shoot them up with  poison and watch them die. At least that is what Larry Pittman wants to do. “If murderers (and I would include abortionists, rapists, and kidnappers, as well) are actually executed, it will at least have the deterrent effect upon them.

I cannot ever put murderers, rapists and abortionists  in the same category. Rape is about control and violence.  Murder, unless in self defense, is a violent cruel act. Abortion is about personal choice and or life saving decisions for mothers.  Of all the pressing problems of our world, what a woman does with her body is not part of it. Impowered people do not tell other people what to do with their bodies. Decide for yourself.

What I love about is that you can be a part of a better world.  Sign petitions, send letters to senators, call your politicians, start a movement!  Do whatever you can to make a positive difference.

Impowered people take positive actions that create positive outcomes.

Impowered people find peaceful non-violent solutions.
