Be the change

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Gandhi

Interesting to think that with all the talking heads, analysts, and pundits in our world, they really have little chance at impacting society. It is the people who put their selves on the line each day who make a difference. It is those people who “fail”, not just some but a lot, who end up changing our world (see bio on Thomas Edison for example). The lesson of the story? If you are passionate about homelessness, get involved. If you feel that education is the key to bringing the less fortunate into the mainstream, get involved. If you want to drink clean water, breath healthy air, eat fish from the local lake, get involved. For someone who “communicates” as a vocation, I have to realize that words can only do so much (actually very little). The real power is in putting words into action. Taking small steps toward making things better for you, your family and our world. Jesus might say it like this, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” So let’s fight for the underpriviledged, stand up for the powerless, care for the needy, and help those who need a hand. (Sounds like an ad for the United Way!) Let us be the change that we long to see in the world.
