Inspiration sometimes happens gradually, like the slow rise of the sun at dawn. Other times it happens in an instant, like a flash flood filling the canyon of your mind. You never know where it may come from – a conversation with a stranger, a walk in nature, a TV advertisement. It strikes and you are compelled to move forward, do something, take action.
It is inspiration that opens the door to imagine new possibilities. And it is action that breathes life into those possibilities, bringing about real change.
These stories are living examples of how those seemingly small moments of inspiration are transformed into action. These stories are of ordinary, every-day teachers, parents, and service providers whose lives were changed because of what they experienced at OCALICON.
They're people just like you. And these are their moments of impact, when inspiration transformed into action.
