The other day, Hubby said something powerful to me. Something that made me sit up and think. He’s good at that, this wonderful man that I married. He’s so much better than me at patience and seeing beyond emotional responses to the bigger picture. You want to know what it was don’t you?
He said, “I’d much rather stop waiting on Government to make the changes I’d like to see in the world and start making the changes myself.” Brilliant! This is why I love this man. (Well, one of the reasons. He also gives a wicked backrub). It’s a little idealistic, but imagine if EVERYONE practiced this policy. Are you imagining? Because it’s pretty awesome.
Reality? Yeah, not everyone WILL do it, but I can dream, right? Until then, even though we don’t have billions of dollars at our disposal, there are billions of changes we can make with no money or even just a very little bit. What difference will you make in the world? While you’re thinking about that, take a moment to watch this video. I found the link at Cutie Booty Cakes, where she’s asking the same thing. What will you do to make a difference?
International Peace Day is September 21. Do something.
