What Inspires You? Vision. When people dare to challenge what is by reaching for something better. That reach is behind all the great accomplishments of mankind. Someone , somewhere, opened their mind to a greater Vision. Amanda Betts' vision in Bridge the Gap Project is that for me, a vision I feel lucky to be a part of.
