“The thing is, ignorance is rarely the problem.
The challenge is that people don’t always care about what you care about. And the reason they don’t care isn’t that they don’t know what you know.

The challenge, then, isn’t to inform them. It’s to engage and teach and communicate in a way that shares emotion and values and beliefs.”
“You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right.”
