So. With this whole constituion debate, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. Honestly, I don’t know whether I will vote Yes or No, though I’m leaning toward one side. I don’t feel fully informed to make a good decision and I need to read the whole thing so I can know what I’m voting for.
I won’t go into details on why to vote Yes or No or all that but this whole thing has got me thinking about how to make an impact. I’ve always wanted to be a heroine, actually a super-heroine…like Wonder Woman or Hawk Girl or Super Girl, etc. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you can stop rolling on the floor now. Breathe.
Anyway, I always admire valiant and courageous people. People who stand up for their own rights and those of others. People who are not cowed by the “powerful” and “influential”. People who are so passionate about their causes that they are willing to die for them.
Problem is, it’s not easy. It’s not easy to challenge wrong-doing. It’s not easy to get out of a comfort zone and confront problems head-on. It’s not easy to go out and get into people’s shoes and try to make a change.
Above all, it’s not easy to love. Love is everything. We cannot do anything without love. A politician must love the people he or she represents in order for him/her to fight for their rights and lead them effectively. A social worker must love the under-privileged in order for him/her to make a positive change in their lives. A teacher must love his/her students so that everything she teaches carries them through and instills in them passion and inspiration, such that they will never forget who she/he was or what she/he left n their hearts and minds.
I have a cause I must fight for. I must do this because if I don’t, who will? I must have love which will lead to passion which will drive me to be the fearless heroine I must be.
I must change the world.
