Helping One Another …

I wouldn't consider myself a preachy kind of person.
I do have beliefs, deep beliefs and as I get older they are becoming more important to me.

I love the world we live in, but I'd love it more if people would step up and help to make the changes we so desperately need.
I'm tired of hearing people say they care, but they don't have time to help.
I'm tired of people blaming every one else for the wrongs in this world, especially when they do nothing to make it any better.
How many times have you walked past a homeless person on a cold day and looked the other way because it's easier than facing them while you hurry on your way, warm and comfortable.
How many times have you looked the other way when you see something bad happening to another human being?
How many times have you said "I"ll keep you in my prayers" and then gotten so busy you forget, or you think to yourself, so many people are praying for them my little prayer wouldn't make a difference.  
Do you rip up the donation envelopes from the cancer society and say, I can't afford it right now, someone else will cover it.
One day you may need that prayer someone asked you for.
You might need a warmer jacket or a pair of gloves.
You might be the person being abused and need a ride to a safe place.
Life changes on a daily basis, 
everything we take for granted can be so quickly taken away.
Stop looking the other way … help change the world, 
it will make a difference.
Pick a cause, any cause will do, there are so many out there to root for and to stand for. It doesn't matter which one you pick, what does matter is that you make your choice. How can anyone stand idly by and do nothing to help your fellow man. Help make changes, don't be afraid to make some noise, let the world know you are out there and you are not Going down without a fight, help make things better for your children and for their children and for all the generations to come. It is inconceivable to think that we as compassionate, loving, caring human beings can live on this earth and ignore what is happening around you on a daily basis. There are so many little things each of us can do that will become the equivalent of many huge things. Imagine if every living human being in this world donated one dollar to a cause. Think of all the cures that could be found for illness and diseases. It's time to stop waiting for someone else to do the right thing, be the example and maybe everyone else will follow. We need to stop fighting one another and take care of the changes we need to see in this world.
In the words of the immortal Dr. Seuss: Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not.
