I Want to Do More

I feel helpless about everything. I hate watching the news, so much going on and we are powerless to stop it. Famine, war, murder, abuse….. It doesn’t end. I know there are small things we can all do but it never seems enough. Like watching for signs of abuse in children, donating to a few pound to charity etc…. I want to do more. I would love to feel like I’m really doing something. Like maybe helping to rebuild homes after a disaster or something, yeah, I’d like that…. I’d like to see the end results of hard work I had done out of kindness. Maybe one day I will do it, who knows.

turn to those closest to you. There are hurting people all around. The gospel message of Jesus Christ is first, then lend a hand!

For so long I wanted to help others thinking the door would open up to me, but it never did. I realized that I had to get out there and volunteer and help others, and I found oppurtunities opening up when I did that. So if you really care then not only keep your eyes open but search too for it like its a lost treasure.

*smiles* its great that you love to make changes and u care...but u have to know that everything that is happening in this world isnt ur fault...so u should stop putting that heavy weight on ur shoulders...<br />
...even though u say u can never do enough, i think u are a great person for trying ur very best...there are not a lot of people who are willing to try as you have...<br />
...what you do for ur community is more than one can expect and if there were more people like you...life would change for the better...

I remember that you once helped an old man who was falling down in front of your working place. I understand what you mean by feeling that you don't do enough, but those things really make a difference. Because we can convince others to be kinder in there day-to-day life by showing them kindness. It's sad that some people don't care and make conditions even worse, and some people care so much like you, and can't do as much as they want to. If everybody just cared about it at a moderate level it would probably create the best results.<br />
It's great that you care so much:)
