Opening the door to Amnesty International

I’ve always had a desire to change the world, to make it a better place.  When I was young, I gravitated to peace groups, literacy groups, organizations like UNICEF, CODE Canada, and Amnesty International.  The desire for change may have burned stronger when I was young than it does now that I’m in my fifties, but it’s still a flame that lights my way.  I was heartened to see that Amnesty International was given the “keys” to the Guardian’s teen book site for a day.  Here’s why:

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to get better: it’s not,” said Dr Seuss’s Lorax.

Amnesty International, the organisation of ordinary people from around the world standing up for humanity and human rights, think that the Lorax has got it right and it’s down to all of us to make a difference in the world.

Here’s the link if you want to read more.  I hope you do.
