I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay… small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps it is because I am afraid… and he gives me courage.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ 2012

What good are our small acts of love and kindness in the face of such oppression within the systems we work in? Be encouraged today. They are the very things that bring empires to their knees and transform the world.
