I met a women through school who was brave enough to share her life story with a room full of strangers. She spoke about terrible accounts of sexual and verbal abuse that she experienced as a child and then again in her young adulthood. As she spoke, she had a resilency and strength about her that is hard to discribe. Toward the end of her sharing, she told the group that she would like to writ...e a book to give hope and inspiration to other people who may have experienced similar life circumstances. As tears flowed down her face, she said, "I want to make waves." I knew in that moment I had to give her a Cause a Ripple stone!! As I presented the gift to her, her eyes lit up and more tears came. She held the stone in her hands and said, "This is perfect. Thank you just isn't enough."
