This question was asked of my 1st grader’s class. “How are you going to change the world?”
And my son’s answer was, “I’m going to be a football player.”
My reaction, “How is THAT going to change the world?”
And then came his beautiful explanation.
“Well when I’m a football player I’m going to help up all of the players when they get knocked down.”
Well, shut my mouth.
WOW. Wouldn’t that change THE WORLD if we ALL just helped up those who got knocked down around us? We don’t have to pick them up, or hold them up. We don’t have to stand around for years supporting them up. But if we just help them up. Just a friendly gesture, a good sportsman like move, an encouraging statement. It would go so far.
That’s how I want to change the world too.
Thank you little man. I love your wise words.
