Be Change

To my son Tommy,

Mahatma Gandhi is credited with saying "you must be the change you want to see in the world". Too many people talk about change but not enough actually embrace it in their personal actions and life. It is easy to fall into the trap of saying how you want the world to be without doing anything about it. People wait for others to solve the world's problem. Remember we are part of the collective society, and our actions reflect what society actually is. If you want the world to be nicer, than be nicer. If you want to the world to be happier than do something to make someone happy. Don't ever underestimate the effect one person can have on this world. Don't let the fact that you can do only a little stop you from doing anything. Imagine what you can accomplish in the next forty days of your life.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
