“I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. ... As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good.”
— Maya Angelou, poet & activist

Today’s Excerpt:

To see the efforts of one young person, watch “Water Activist: Autumn Peltier” (3-min video)

Autumn Peltier, a 16-year-old from Wiikwemkoong First Nation in Ontario, tells about her sustained activism to get access to clean drinking water in her community — something that everyone deserves regardless of belief or identity.


  • Can you imagine what it would be like to not be able to drink or use water because of pollution?
  • What do you think about Autumn’s decision to speak to the prime minister even though she had been told not to?

Activism is when we make our values visible in the world — and that we can find our values by getting clear about where real-world suffering and our passion meet.
