One Can Make A Difference is a collection of inspirational essays compiled by Ingrid Newkirk from a diverse range of sources from celebrities to every day individuals, each of whom made a difference in the lives of others. Newkirk herself is the founder/president of PETA, but doesn’t use this book for her own soapbox, instead focusing on how one individual can effect change. Essays from Sean Astin, Oliver Stone, and Willie Nelson sit alongside writings from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Representative Dennis Kucinich, each possessing the same message: one person can and does make a difference in the lives of others. This is a great book for anyone who is looking for or needs that boost to know that each of us plays a vital role in the continual evolution of our planet. Printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper. From Adams Media and available at your local, independent bookstore. (Tell them you saw it on ElephantJournal.com!)
