This article about three of my intrepid students at Columbia University and what they pulled off in one semester put me in mind of Margaret Mead’s saying about changing the world:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Of course, it’s never that easy. This horrible disease is not cured, nor are so many other problems facing of our world.  But my student’s attitudes reminded me of another favorite, this one by Billie Holiday:

“The difficult I’ll do right now.  The impossible will take a little while.”

Carry on, friends!
