“Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.”
— Mother Teresa
Everyday, we read about tragedies and wish we could help. Many of these are problems – poverty, homelessness, violence, drugs, recession – of such immense proportions that even governments and organizations with billions of dollars at their disposal struggle to solve. We, as individuals, feel powerless.
Yet, at the same time, there are problems which we can solve – feeding one person, giving a poor child a present on Christmas, cleaning up trash in our neighborhoods – that we can solve. We, as individuals, are empowered.
The question is, which will you choose?
