George Takei posted this on his Facebook today (if you’re not following him, you should be — he basically runs a Tumblr on there). It reminded me of a quote I saw on Tumblr a couple of weeks ago. I’m not religious, but found it poignant (paraphrasing here): “I want to ask God why he allows wars, disease, poverty and senseless deaths to occur, but I’m afraid He will ask me the same question.”
Remember: you are somebody.
It is amazing how liberating it is to just go do stuff. Friend can’t buy groceries? Buy groceries for friend. PROBLEM SOLVED.
This is it. Here’s the world. Here. Now. Do something! (I recommend helping people. There are always people who need help. Possibly this is because we sit around complaining about it…)
You would be surprised at just how much good the most seemingly infinitesimal amount of kindness can do.
