Why would you bother to help that man, who sits there, no legs no home? Why bother to help him out, give him your money and give him your smile? Why bother stop violence and embrace peace, doesn't war solve problems? Why bother to protest for the sake of another? Why bother do something to help the world? Why bother ditch your Humvee and get a hybrid? Why bother at all in the world if all there is, is bad? Why care at all what happens you'll die bother the bad comes so why bother? Help the old man who fought in the war that got you your freedom. Flash him a smile, lift his spirits, make his day. Stop violence, say something, do something to stop hate. Be selfless in respect to the ones who make this world run and fight for the rights of us, the everyday people. Pick up that can that the man threw down, recycle to YOUR part. It's not as if your asked to accomplish a cure or a solution but you and yourself can make the smallest difference. A second can make a difference but a smile can make a life.
