“How to Change the World”
I saw this photo across Facebook today, and wanted to share it with you.
When I look at the different boxes in this picture, I think about the stages of change that have taken place, and what was required to make those changes for progress.
Looking at the picture as is, I’m sure some may see it as overly idealistic or simplistic.
However I think going through the phases of progress in this picture, moving from “box to box” as they are played out in real life can take many years, sometimes decades, sometimes centuries when I think about various social justice movements.
I think the key here is consistency. It might take time to see progress, but in this photo, I see that there was at least one person who stayed true to spreading the message of love. This in turn was able to help others join the cause.
Grace & Peace,
