Last words from President Clinton - GPF Apr 13

President Clinton closed his remarks at the Global Philanthropy Forum with this thought about who needs to be involved in changing the world and why:

"You do. After all, you don't have anything better to do."

As he had spoken of the "unequal, unstable and unsustainable" nature of our world and exhorted us to consider the powerful potential contributions all of us can make toward building "integrated communities with empowered people," his final words rang clear. Anyone with children, anyone who likes trees, anyone who prefers peace, anyone who cares to eat on a regular basis - we don't have anything better to do than work for these change.
