START WITH YOUR­SELF

Activated - - NEWS -

Au­thor un­known When I was young and free and my imag­i­na­tion had no lim­its, I dreamed of chang­ing the world. As I grew older and wiser, I dis­cov­ered the world would not change, so I short­ened my sights some­what and de­cided to change only my coun­try. But it, too, seemed im­mov­able.

As I grew into my twi­light years, in one last des­per­ate at­tempt, I set­tled for chang­ing only my fam­ily, those clos­est to me, but alas, they would have none of it. And now as I lie on my deathbed, I sud­denly re­al­ized: If I had only changed my­self first, then by ex­am­ple I would have changed my fam­ily. From their in­spi­ra­tion and en­cour­age­ment, I would then have been able to bet­ter my coun­try and, who knows, I may have even changed the world.
