The iAS intention is appreciation of what we have, and appreciation for where we are going. So many people may feel disenfranchised or feel aloof, and yet each of us is inexorably connected.
Each of us is ultimately responsible. Every person must find in themselves their own courage to face these facts.
iAS can only be on the sideline waiting for the moment that courage stands up to say, "If not me then who; if not now then when. I am the change I seek. My life is finding the friends and the smarts to make it happen."
