They cannot part seas or move mountains. All they can do is motivate ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things.They persuade lawmakers to rethink foreign aid, encourage impoverished villagers to fight for self-sufficiency, motivate an entire nation to end a decade long civil war, and prod reporters to expose corruption deep inside a government program to feed the homeless.The task is overwhelming but these young spirits are unafraid to adapt and improvise. They see hope where others see despair because the mission is that important. The lives of millions around the world are at stake.
