Dr. Jane Goodall: A Reason for Hope

On September 25, 2006, I attended a lecture entitled, “A Reason for Hope” where primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall discussed the power of the individual. I was inspired by her message:
Every individual matters
Every individual has a role to play
Every individual makes a difference

Dr. Goodall stated that one person who independently attempts to make a difference faces obstacles but if each person works collectively making a difference becomes possible. That is, if teachers work mutually toward change, then change becomes easily accessible. In other words, change is greater in numbers.
