 Legislative Assembly - October 24-25, 2014

(Hilton Vancouver, WA)

Few will have the greatness...

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each one of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation."

-Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968); American politician, activist

 

The majority of us lead quiet...

"The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents.
