Soon after groups of people gathered to make this dream, this thought, a reality. I couldn't believe how so many people from different communities could come together in a world that usually seemed so cold amd empty. I couldn't believe that people actually cared enougth to do so something so extraordinary. I couldn't believe it until I saw it for myself. Irena, age 19
Never doubt that a small group of committed people
can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
