If you're like me, you feel the burden of every evil, ugly, hateful, and sad thing that happens in our world. Your heart hurts for those who have been uprooted from their homes, and for those who have lost someone or something that they once held dear. You worry about the destruction of our environment, and the loss of precious species. And you see racism and starvation and inequality and war, and it all just feels...overwhelming. So how can we remain positive and optimistic in a world that feels broken beyond repair? You remember the power of "one." Jack Kemp once said, "the power of one man or one woman doing the right thing for the right reason, and at the right time, is the greatest influence in our society." So remember that one smile can start a friendship. One tree can start a forest. One word can end a fight. One candle can wipe out darkness. One touch can show you care. And most importantly, remember that one person can make a difference. So today, and every day, be the one.
