THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT: A Tribute to JoAnne Pike - by Lori McIlwain

From Lori McIlwain, National Autism Association

A Tribute to JoAnne Pike

I believe that to be a leader, you must have more hope in your heart than fear. Fear won’t allow you to take a stand without reluctance, or speak without anticipated rejection. It won’t give you an original point of view, or allow you to remain unapologetic. It will only make you believe that change is too difficult, and that no human life is valuable enough to initiate it.

Jo Pike never had fear in her heart, only hope.
