YOU ARE THE SOMEONE. TODAY IS THE DAY.
You don't have to look very far to know that our world is a messed up place. People are hurting. Suffering is everywhere. It can be really overwhelming. You might wonder why someone isn't doing something. Where is the help? Or you may think that if you're going to make a difference, it will be someday ... when you're older, better educated, have more money, or have fewer problems of your own.
Well, this morning when you woke up, there were people around the world and in your own community who were hoping that today might be the day. The day someone stepped in between slaves and their oppressors. The day relief from suffering begins. The day they could feed, clothe and educate their kids. The day someone showed kindness to them, or let them know they had value.
Please. Know this -- while you may not be able to do everything -- and you can't solve all of the problems alone -- working together, our generation CAN make a difference.
Don't wait for someone else. Don't wait for someday. Because, YOU are the someone and TODAY is the day.
