Making the World into a Better Place

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but it’s all about what we do, because everything we are doing affects others in one way or another.

I have been communicating with my family and friends in Uganda. We have been talking about the young people and how depressed they are, because when they try to raise up their voice pointing out the problems they face and asking for help, no one listens to them! So, the young people are starting to do desperate things in order to get attention.

When I talked to some of them about what’s going on there, most of them that said, “We don’t have hope in this world as young people!” That was heartbreaking!!! One of them said, “At least you, Wilson ,are not involved in these difficulties, because you are in the USA.” I told him that things that affect human beings affect me too. It doesn’t matter if I’m in the USA or not. We are all living in the same world. You see? He said, “Yeah.”

Then he asked me, “What should we do to help the world, Wilson? I said, “I don’t have a direct answer for now, but we can pray for each other.”

I hope our prayers will make a difference in this world.

If you have an answer, please let me know, because your idea can make a big difference in someone’s life.

Thanks!

  1. We would love to help actively or have the answer to the biggest problems of this planet but sometimes we only have our prayers. I believe that they do have an effect because we send a wave of love over the world which hopefully sparks in the hearts of those who can do something actively!

  2. I think we all have a different part to play in making the world a better place. Some are big parts, some are smaller, some are similar, but they all matter. Prayer is always a good place to start. We can ask God to show us the way. I’m praying for you and your young friend.

  3. Just keep sharing your loving heart with others… You are doing good with your words and your prayer. People just need to know they are loved… That they are valuable just as they are. So much of the pain we see in the world is because hurt people are seeking affirmation and love… Acceptance and belonging…

  4. Reading this I can see your heart full of compassion and empathy Wilson. Taking the time to pray for others is one of the greatest things we can do for others. Even though we may be separated by thousands of miles, amazing things do happen.

  5. ‘Everything we are doing affects others in one way or another.’ This is so true and I couldn’t agree more. The smallest action could have the biggest impact on others, even if it’s just one person. You are doing such amazing work, communicating with those in Uganda and trying to make a difference. You are very kind, hardworking and I do wish you all the best. So long as we try, anything is possible.

  6. I don’t have a direct answer either except to keep lifting each other up and being kind and loving, and keep fighting to be heard.

  8. Prayers are helpful, yet we need to be more proactive in creating a better world, through unconditional love, compassion and concerted efforts to make the world a better place, starting with ourselves, our families, the communities in which we live and then the broader World. Each in our own small way can make a difference :). WE must debunk the lies and deceptions that the power elite use to control us, ’cause our numbers are far broader than theirs, and if we unite as one World, we together can disintegrate those power structures and can create a better world! But first, we must dig deep down for the truth of ourselves and research and dig deep for the truths of the World, so that we can overcome our collective shadow, and rise into a more truthful heartfelt era. Too many people pray, yet don’t do anything proactive, and that is so sad…We can give hope to others through our positivity and caring nature, and sometimes that is all that is needed to ignite lost hope and love. blessings to you Wilson :).

  9. This is heartwarming and makes my heart hurt, as well. This quote came to mind:
    “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” – Desmond Tutu
    Perhaps you can convey this to those kids. Just pick one small thing and put your energy there. Do small acts toward achieving that one thing as often as you reasonably can…that is how change starts and at least we know we are doing something to part of the solution. Because when we do nothing, we are still part of the problem…
    Thanks for sharing this.
