When I study of world these days, I see a lot of despair, and hopeless. There are countless problems that our society faces such as war, the degradation of the environment, and crime
However, I believe that there is hope for the future of society.
The hope for the future comes from people I see trying to make a difference in society. Some of these people are famous, others are not so famous.
The reality that you don't have is famous, have a lot of money to make a difference.
All you have to do is try to live your life the best you can with companion and service.
The thing is that we might be to change the world by ourselves, but we can change the lives of people around us by being kind, compassionate. If each and one of us try to be more loving human beings, I believe that the world will change for the better because despite our differences, we are all human beings and as human beings we want to be loved, valued, and listened to.
I challenge each one of you to be a person who brings people together, instead pushing people apart.
I believe that you can make a difference. It doesn't matter if you're a businessman, a lawyer, a doctor, a poet, you can make a difference because who you are.
Have the courage to make a difference, have the courage to shine your light upon the world.
