A Journey to Independence
When Ambition Meets Good Fortune - Dreams Emerge & Their Achievement
“Nearly forty years later, I can reflect on what a blessing it has been to encounter so many people who chose to help someone in need — not because they had to but because they simply could. They showed mercy or compassion, and through their action taught a lesson. Sometimes these deeds, bold in their scope and lofty in their ambition, create headlines. More often, they are performed anonymously, quietly, reaching no further than the heart they were intended to touch. In whatever form, such acts create their own legacy of hope and inspiration. They pass something on. This book is my effort to share some of the lessons that have imbued me with core values, shaped my identity, and made me want to be a better man.” Enjoy This Thought-Provoking Read with Deval Patrick, former Massachusetts Governor and author of A Reason to Believe: Lessons from an Improbable Life.
“We belong to each other... owe something to each other “, remarks Deval Patrick speaking with Guy Raz. Listen to this Thought-Provoking 20-minute Interview with Deval Patrick.
Give to Cultivate Independence & Stories of Achievement
Education in the US, unlike other developed countries, is fraught with systemic injustice, built-in roadblocks for youth from families with limited financial resources. All Out for Change®, via organizations and students we support with College Access Funds and Supplemental Scholarship Funds, helps break through the roadblocks along the journey to achievement and upward mobility.
