There's lots for you to do!

It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and beliefs that human history is shaped. Each time one stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
