Rosa Parks wrote in her book Quiet Strength: “I find that if I am thinking too much of my own problems and the fact that at times things are not just like I want them to be, I do not make any progress at all. But if I look around and see what I can do, and then I do it, I move on.”
Youth, and indeed life itself, flashes by in the blink of an eye. That is why it is important for each of us to ask yourselves what we can do for those who are suffering, what we can do to resolve the contradictions that plague society and to boldly take on these great challenges in small and grand ways, every chance we get.
Change often does not incur in big sweeping movements, but through small consistent efforts and energies.
Peace and Love, Jim
