Today we face unprecedented set of problems across the globe. It seems there is no escape route for these enormous problems affecting the society. Hatred, wars, famine, epidemics, disappointments, and several others are some of the challenges that refuse to disappear from our midst. They say life is not perfect and we as people are certainly not either. This perception has distorted our reality in taking a step further in curbing the challenges affecting humanity. We have burdened a few people to own the problems and solve for us while we stand and watch.
The struggle to overcome difficulties facing the world can be achieved when people start living for others. Every one of us is put in the world to contribute and make a difference in our own uniqueness. The quest to making a difference is not only for a few good men of the society. Everyone is capable of being one of such few good men living for others and solving problems. We don’t need to do anything out of this world to make an impact. Every little effort done with love counts and is never small. Mother Theresa understood the power of doing a little something with love that it makes a huge difference and wrote “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one”.
The call to be part of the solution is for everyone. We have a role to make our world a better place to live regardless of the circumstances around us. Extra ordinary qualities and abilities are non-essential to transform lives, community and solve problems. Just look around and see how best you can help. Effecting change should never be assumed as a responsibility of few good men, educated or the rich. Let us be the example that can be associated with the few people that are making an impact in solving the world’s challenges. Let us be bold, dream and step up to make a difference in this broken world as John K.F Kennedy reminds us that “The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizon are limited by the obvious realities, we need men who can dream of things that were never were”.
