This struggle I speak of is man's fight to survive in a world dominated by violence, money, and hate. We must recognize that human beings alone are both the problem and the solution. Every human being deserves the right to a helping hand when they fall. We feed off each other in that sense. Put it this way: if every person on earth required help from their fellow man to get back on their feet when they fell, I fear we would be in sad shape. I think our planet would be scattered with millions reaching for the heavens. And those who could walk would keep their hands in their pockets. Humans, as a species, need help from their peers. That's what we're here for; to help one another.
With all the vast problems of the world, the idea of improving the situation can seem futile. This is the sort of mentality that we have been given in our globalized society. We must not give into this mindset that the problem is out of our hands. No one person can clean up the entire world's mess. But with some intelligence and a little effort, we might just make this life worth living. It is the individual's job to make a personal impact on those around him or her. By doing so, we can not only better the lives of those around us; but our own lives as well. When the quality of life around you improves, the same will happen for you. So do yourself the favor: be more aware of the impact you can make. It may just be your own life you improve.
