Change the World

February 18, 2013

As I was walking across the sweet sugar sand at orange beach, my mom and I noticed more and more random trash: beer bottles, sand toys, Styrofoam, and much more. We didn’t see anyone else picking it up, so we started picking some of it up and throwing it away.
I began to think about this experience a little deeper. It seems that many people seem to put garbage into the world without picking their share up. I’m not just talking about littering; I’m thinking more about the people and the part we play in this world. Some of the trashes I see people leave behind are poor work ethics and the way we treat others.
We always want change. We want the world to be a better place. We want the government to straighten out again. We want our families to be together and happy. We want the war to end. We all want change but don’t do anything to make change.
We all want something to change, but no one seems to stand up and made a difference. If we all sit on our couches and never stand up for anything, nothing will ever change.
Everyone can make a difference in the world, but one person can’t change the world all by themselves. Making a difference is a group effort. At one point women wanted to be able to vote, if no one had started meetings and protests women might not be able to vote still.
We all can make a difference, if it’s as small as picking up garbage on the beach to mending a dysfunctional family, or even straitening the government out.
Never be afraid to stand up to make a difference because everyone needs a little change. As Gandhi once said “Be the change you want to see in the world”. So get off your couch and be that change.
