A Wishbone, a Jawbone, a Backbone

Recently I was in a roomful of people brought to their feet by an inspiring call-to-action from activist and former Ohio Senator Nina Turner.

At one point, Turner imparted a piece of wisdom she learned from her grandmother.

To get along in life, she said, all you need is a wishbone (so you can dream), a jawbone (so you can speak truth to power), and a backbone (because the road to fulfilling your dreams is paved with setbacks).

It’s not enough to dream. It’s not enough to speak truth to power. We also need the backbone to stay in this for the long haul.

Please make a donation today, so your gift can be matched by both Mercola.com and Dr. Bronner’s (that’s a triple match)! Your donation will fund our ongoing work to expose the health and environmental hazards, including toxic chemicals. Donate online, by mail or by phone—details here.
