Theme

#makeyourchoice

Each and every day we all make about 20.000 decisions. Those decisions don´t necessarily change our lives dramatically, though our lives are constructs of the little choices we make every day. Thinking back we find that our lives could have run differently, if we decided on walking different paths by making different choices.

Each of our speakers was at that crossroad, consciously choosing to walk a different path. Those conscious choices can simply make our world a better place.

"Make your choice, adventurous Stranger, strike the bell and bide the danger,
or wonder, till it drives you mad, what would have followed if you had..."

C.S. Lewis
