So many times we only remember important lessons near Christmas time. During the year we forget others, we are not so nice to people, and we seem to forget others throughout the world are in need of our help and prayers or even just a smile to strangers we pass on the street.
While doing research for more videos to put up on the magazine I ran across the video “We Are The World” this song touched me as a young teenager so very much, and today it still brings back all those same thoughts and ideas I had back then.
“We Are The World” reminds us that everyone can make a difference, AND we each are in charge of our own destinies as well as how others view themselves! What a powerful thought! We change people’s lives each and everyday just by being who we are…so who are you?
Do you think of others? Do you pass people on the street and act like they are not there? Do you treat others bad? When was the last time you smiled at someone? Or give money to the Salvation Army or some other charity that you pass on the street? What about just smiling at a stranger? Or helping them in the parking lot? We don’t have to do a lot to make a difference in this life!
I know this song is not a Christmas song per say but listen to it and hear the words….
“We are the ones who make it a brighter day, so let’s start giving….”
Remember to give a little of yourself each and every day…
