Motivation can come in many forms, and those who can take someone elses 'hate' and turn it into a positive action for change seem to go far in this world. The gay rights movement is a good example. It doesn't seem like it sometimes, but we've come a helluva long way in 40 plus years.....of course there is still a long way to go.
