Changing the world, all 8 billion people, is an impossible feat. The 90 million Filipino people alone are already very hard to manage. So many have tried and yet the world seems to be the same. Many have given up after trying having realized that to change that which is beyond their reach is virtually impossible. Many have tried dying. Others have survived but with the scars of their experiences. So, we still complain that the world is unsafe, is not peaceful, still riddled with hate and destruction and negligence. And then we stopped trying to change the world because apparently, the world cannot be changed.
But maybe we are setting our sight for something far from which our eyes can see. Maybe, it is time to set our eyes on that which is closer to us: our families, our neighbors, our friends. Maybe by affecting the lives of others that surround us, especially those that are dear to us but most especially those we don't know at all, we can ignite the spark that shall spread like wildfire and engulf the world.
To change the world one person at a time begins with the changing of one's self. Let this be our Christmas prayer.
