We begin with education. Education brings forth knowledge and knowledge affords us wisdom . . . and when we are wise . . . then we are able to discern between what it good and what is bad; what is appropriate vs. what is inappropriate; what is positive vs. what is negative. We are able to make correct decisions that affect not only ourselves but those around us as well. When we are wise, we can actually influence those around us and when we are able to influence others . . . be it our family members, friends, co-workers or community, we are empowered. And when we are empowered . . . then we can effect change.”
