You believe in something.

You know it’s right.

You know it’s better.

You know it will help us.

You know it’s necessary right now.

You’ve done your homework.

You’ve put in the time, the energy, the resources.

You’ve lost sleep.

You’ve doubted and debated.

You’ve resolved to do this thing.

This very important thing.

The world is not waiting for you.

The world does not care.

The world is noisy, distracted and confused.

Which is why you believe what you believe.

But the world is not your concern.

We are your concern.

The people whose lives your work will touch.

Stand your ground.

We are waiting.

You believe in something.

We believe in you.
