What Can We Do To Help The World?
What can we do? The answer is very simple: Let's do what we can.
There are many things we can do which cost
us little or nothing: give a word of encouragement to someone;
express ourselves more, now and then (and others who have gone
silent may get the idea they too can express themselves); pass
on information which we feel is important; etc.
All these things make a difference. Remember the phrase: 'You
can make the difference'. It is true. Every little thing
each of us does, which is good and positive, helps the world. We
may be on the threshold of a far better world. Help the better
Remember these ideas for living our lives:
 "Do what you can, with what you
have, with where you are."
~ Theodore Roosevelt
 Lyrics from the song 'Land of Confusion', by Genesis.
These words repeat Theodore Roosevelt's idea. 'These are the
hands we're given': wherever we are, whatever we are doing,
however 'down' and disappointed we feel, there are still many,
many things we can do. Let's start where we are now, and 'make
the difference', and create a better world.
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in
 "We must do what we conceive to be
the right thing and not bother our heads or burden our souls
with whether we will be successful. Because if we don't do the
right thing, we will be doing the wrong thing and we will just
be a part of the disease and not part of the cure." ~ E. F.
These words by Schumacher are great. They
let us off the hook. If we do some things each day which tend to
help people and help the world, we can feel okay about
ourselves, because by doing those things we are taking part in
the solution the world needs. We are not 'part of the problem'.
We are living our lives as part of the answer; and we can rest
easy when we go to sleep at night. The rest is up to God and up
to other people. Spread the word: It's time to get involved...
and make the difference.
