Story 22 - For the Sake of Truth.
page 156

      To judge by the people's applause, I felt that I had made a successful speech that day. But would anyone remember a word of it the next day? Would everything continue to be business as usual?
      I remembered Fred's comment after the Caracas conference was over, were countless great speeches had been made, while few actions resulted from them. Fred had been right in his comment. His comment had been, "and so, the world grinds on."
      As I left the conference hall that day, I was filled with a buoyant hope that the response would be different this time. It was encouraging to note that during the course of my speech and the long discussion that followed, the audience had increased in numbers to almost five hundred. Maybe the world would not just "grind on" this time around. Maybe a reverse paradigm shift had really begun to unfold.
