An speech by Andy Andrews- is an amazing testiment to how we can positively or negatively effect those around us, even for generations- connecting Norman Borlaug (The Man Who Saved a Billion Lives) and the slave owning farmer from Diamond, Missouri.
“You have within you the power to change the world.
Know that your actions cannot be hoarded, saved for later, or used selectively. By your hand, millions – billions – of lives will be altered, caught up in a chain of events begun by you this day. The very beating of your heart has meaning and purpose. Your actions have value far greater than silver or gold.
Your life and what you do with it today matters forever.”
