What is the real meaning of ODFL? Is it the projects that are helping people “out there”? Is it the way we feel better about ourselves when we help others? Or is it that together we actually have the power to bring great goodness into the world?
It’s all those. The irony is that the projects “out there,” though beautiful, are actually the least of it. The reason is that once people experience themselves as “bigger people,” they move differently in the world. They have more to give. More to share. They are more effective human beings. And an entire culture empowered like that will truly move the world.
WE have almost unimaginable power to bring goodness into the world. All that’s required is that we each do the smallest bit. ODFL’s motto: “Even the greatest waterfall starts with a single drop of water.”
So, whichever of the three meanings are right for you—and it might well be all three—we’re glad you’re here. There’s much to be done.
