Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead

I am Inspired by Molly Katchpole.  When Bank of America announced that it would be adding a $5.00 monthly fee for using a debit card, Molly (a 22 year old from Washington, DC) took action and began a petition.  In less than a month 300,000 people responded and Bank of America is revising its’ position… though not yet eliminating the fee for all customers.

I am inspired by Molly for taking action with her petition through Change.org that has rallied so many of us to easily allow our voices to be heard.  This is a striking example of the impact each of us can have.  This is empowerment.

Watch Diane Sawyer’s reporting of the story:

Allow your voice to be heard – each one of us does make a difference.
