  • "We are all a bridge across forever....", wrote Richard Bach in his book, 'Bridge across forever' (which I highly recommend).

    We CAN change the world, the reason we often don't is that we try to change the whole world, the bigger world rather than "our" world. We don't need to concern ourselves with the rights and wrongs of many of our social ills, we need only concern ourselves with the social ills in our tiny little corner of the world and, by changing that, we can start the ball rolling to motivate others to change their world too so that, eventually, the whole world will change.

    MLK, Ghandi, Mother Teresa...to name but a few...none tried to change the ENTIRE world at the one time. They started by changing their world and in doing so, they made far reaching, lasting, historical changes that still resound among us today.

    Hitler also tried to change the entire world of course. Extreme differences perhaps but sufficient to make the point, I think!?
