TEDxMidAtlantic 2013: Start Now We all possess the power to initiate change, in ways both small and large. Regardless of our situation or current challenges we can each start now. We can start with what we have, what we know, our human network, and with the knowledge gained from experience. We can begin with the lessons of the wise, and the optimism and fresh perspective of the young. We can start with simple gestures of kindness. We can start with clarity of purpose. We can start with a new outlook. TEDxMidAtlantic 2013 will showcase the stories of those who have led by example, and the ideas that can help us reframe the most intractable problems in new, imaginative ways.
