Ingrid Newkirk's new book, One Can Make a Difference: How Simple Actions Can Change the World, is an enlightening roadmap for anyone who seeks a just society and strives to make a positive impact on our world.
Ingrid has compiled more than 50 thought-provoking essays written by an intriguing and diverse group of individuals. Featured authors include celebrities, such as Oliver Stone and Brigitte Bardot; renowned physicians; and private citizens who, armed with nothing more than the power of their own beliefs, have made a positive impact on the world. As readers peek into the psyche of these amazing personalities, they will discover that all it takes to create an entire movement is the desire and determination of any one person.
In her introduction to these inspiring essays, Ingrid underscores the fact that we all face inevitable challenges in our lives—one does not have to be famous or wealthy to be active in making the world a better place:
By including both the "known" and the "unknown," I hope this book illustrates (a) that even those we admire from afar invariably face obstacles and have to find ways to keep their belief alive and (b) that you don't have to be a household name to make a difference, to become an example to others; you just need to have a conviction.
