The Word Is CHANGE

This series is inspired by the "Words From
Unity" public service announcements
that ran on television (particularly in
Kansas City) in the 1970's and 80's.
Politicians promise it. Spouses demand it. And we get upset when we don't get it. Change is something we demand a lot from other people but don't get enough to satisfy us.

Robert Wagner saw it from a more fateful angle, as something that happens to people rather than something people do:

He's looking at this as a noun, not a verb. When you deal with change, are you simply accepting it or actively inspecting it? Is it necessary? Is it right? Should you be changing the change? Are you going to be better off with the change than when you started? Is the change bettering just one person or many?

Situations change. People change. But when we change, we need to change for the right reasons, not simply because we have accepted change as life's sole constant.
