Can I become change?

Mahatma Gandhi stated, “We must become the change we want to see in the world.” Lent and New Year’s Day are the traditional times Recycle_Logoto consider change. It’s easy to see that our world must change. We can’t continue polluting the air and water, we can’t keep killing one another, we can’t keep letting the poor become poorer, we can’t keep closing our borders to refugees and immigrants. But what can one person do in the face of world problems? I can recycle and reuse, I can become politically involved, I can participate in organizations that make my town and world better. I can become the change I want to see.

    It is as easy as being the person who wears a smile and waves to others as they pass. Spread happiness. Spread love, peace, and joy.

    As Matthew Kelly says, “Do the next right thing.” That can effect change, one action at a time. I am also reminded of the person walking along the ocean shore who throws starfish back into the water. When asked why he bothers because there are so many lying along the shore, he responds that it makes a difference for each one he throws back. He changes their outcome dramatically!
