“One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.” Dr Martin Luther King
“Be the change you want to see in the World” by staying wide AWAKE through this time of revolutionary change and, wherever possible, maybe start thinking about where we might be able to influence positive social change.
If you’re not sure where or how you could make a difference, be mindful and aware of how particular mainstream or even social media news items or internet articles make you feel? Are there some that really pull on your heartstrings .. or make you angry, agitated, sad, frustrated or annoyed? Why does it make you feel that way? … and … “How or what can you do to influence positive change in this particular area?
Ignoring it won’t make it go away.
So, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, our good intentions and any action(s) we take will make us feel better knowing that we’re contributing to making a positive difference in this changing World.
At least we tried, right?
