All of us can make a difference in the world. Every single one of us can nudge the world in the right direction. The secret is simple.
This is all that is necessary for us to see a brighter future. Start now. Wherever you are, with whatever resources available, you have the power to make the world a better and safer place for all of us. Justice begins when we act.
Praying for the hungry means feeding the hungry. Pope Francis has it right. This is how prayer works. Caring enough to pray for the hungry means little if our compassion isn’t deep enough to lead us to action.
We can, and we should, end hunger in the next 15 years. Working together we can change the world forever. Praying for the hungry is necessary to make it happen. Feeding the hungry is necessary to make it happen. Changing our values and our consumer-oriented and our wasteful lifestyles are all also necessary.
The key to ending hunger in our lifetime is taking action. We just need to care enough to act.
We already know too much about the #BLOTUS. We all know his history, his character, and his self-absorbed lifestyle of greed, bigotry and selfishness. We also know of his inability to properly lead our nation. We know his complain disdain for our laws and his continuing practice of bending them, breaking them, and completely ignoring them. We know he is a pathological liar. We all know he is unfit to hold the office of president of the United States.
But, knowledge is of no value unless we put it into practice. Chekhov is right on this point. Why, then, hasn’t the #BLOTUS already been impeached?
Most of us will never be in a position to give $11 million to help those in need. But everyone of us can provide hope to someone. We can all be heroes of hope.There are thousands, even millions, of ways to demonstrate the love of God to those around us. A word of encouragement can change a person’s life forever.
Helping our neighbors begins with caring enough to act. Kindness is in short supply these days. Smile more, and look for opportunities to put love into action. Providing hope for even one person is helping nudge the world in the right direction.
Become a hero of hope. The world needs more heroes.
