PlanetRock Foundation co-founder Larissa Gomez-Vasquez (left) completes the AIDS/LifeCycle Ride to End AIDS fundride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Along with representatives from over twenty countries and nearly every U.S. state, Larissa helped raise a record $16.3 million for AIDS-related research and support. That’s how we do it!
For the first time in human history, we can do almost anything.
And yet there remains hunger, homelessness, violence, unspeakable suffering,
and the anger that erupts from deep and sustained hopelessness.
But we can do better. We have to – because apathy is not an option,
and failure is only a reminder to get better and keep going….keep climbing…
keep trying and trying…crying and fighting for that which is just and true and right.
Now we can fix these things, but it’s going to take a historic first.
Everyone who wants to be part of the solution has to be willing to reach across the divide.
Willing to share ideas.
Even share credit.
For the first time in human history, solutions are easy.
What we need is integrity, courage, conviction, and will.
It’s time to do things better.
