I DARE YOU!
I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!
I TRIPLE DOG DARE YOU!
“Mourn not the dead that in the cool earth lie—
But rather mourn the apathetic throng—
The cowed and the meek—
Who see the world’s great anguish and it’s wrong
And dare not speak.
Just a thought—apathy seems to be running rampant in our world. The only thing that seems to bring humanity together is a tragedy. Then we work together to fix the damage or correct the wrong. But, what are we doing on those quiet days, when the tornado has not destroyed the town; the bombs have not killed people; the planes have not crashed into the buildings?
Do we have a passion to which we commit? Do we go out and make a difference? It does not have to be a huge difference—just a simple hello, a smile, a wave, a phone call, or an email. A response given to those in need or that have reached out to you.
I beg you to reach out—because everyone is fighting some sort of battle. Suffering happens to all of us. What makes the difference in people’s lives is our reaction to their pain.
How will you react today? Whose life will you touch?
I hope someone’s.
