Do just one thing.

On August 19th, 1991, Boris Yeltsin stood on top of a tank and defended demoracy against a socialist coup. He credited his inspiration to reading the stories of Lech Wałęsa.

Lech Wałęsa helped play a key role in inspiring Poland towards democracy.  He credited his inspiration to reading the stories of Martin Luther King, Jr.

MLK boycotted the bus system and was a voice for civil rights and anti-war struggles. He credited his inspiration to Rosa Parks.

Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus, opposing an unjust law.

That's it. It took courage, but it's something we could all do, right?

And if you trace the thread, one person's act might have lead to a major setback to communism's reign. One act played a key role in breaking the chain.

What one thing might you do today that echoes into eternity?

(h/t my D.S. Linda for the inspiration).
