"If you hold an anti-war rally, I will not attend. If you hold a pro-peace rally, invite me."
Mother Teresa

I love this quote by Mother Teresa and think of it often during election time. I am most interested in candidates who are "for" the issues and causes I am passionate rather than globally"against" things. In my personal and professional life, I find that I am most effective when I working toward a solution rather than fighting against negative situations.

What are you"for" in life? How can you transform something you are against into something that you stand up for?
