"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Kind Words Before Competition

The project: Help others prepare mentally and physical for competition.

Time: Negligible.

Why bother?
Many people become incredibly nervous when they are faced with the bright lights and inevitable judgment of on-stage performance. As we headed into Sweet Adelines International Region 11 competition, it was easy enough to tuck a tag, adjust makeup, provide positive words to others, friends and strangers alike, who were headed for the stage.

Worth it?
A very small deed, indeed. Still, worth it and appropriate to the day's activities.
