This blog is a call to action.
If the above two phrases has some resonance with you, take a moment to act. Things go wrong and bad things happen, we all know this and have come to accept certain things as a way of life. The fact however Life is what WE make it. All the inspirational messages that people forward you on emails and WhatsApp etc. don’t mean a thing if its treated as entertainment. Ask yourself when was the last time you did something for another other human being just because you can.
Then ask yourself how long does it take for you to change another’s life for the better. To be clear I am not asking you to donate tons of money to some charity or take to the streets. Small things can help just as much when everybody is doing it.
- Donate blood.
- When you see someone on the road after an accident stop and ask them if they need help instead of slowing down to see what the commotion is about.
- If you see something dangerous on the road try and get rid of it or make sure the right people are informed.
- When you know something is not right raise your voice against it. Remember social media can be used for SOCIAL things too.
