More Thoughts On Bloggers Unite November 10, 2008

November 10, 2008 at 12:24 pm (Motivation-Inspiration) (, , , , )

Today I was asked to tell about my accomplishments in life.  It made me think about what have I done in my life that is significant.  Maybe the things that I think are significant are not enough on the big world’s scheme of things.  I am not a Mother Teresa, nor am I a great musician, writer, painter.  I will most likely never invent the cure for cancer or some other horrible disease.  What are my accomplishements?  In this day of worshipping the athlete, or the actor, or the model, or the rappers, or rock stars, what have I done?   Have I accomplished anything that people might look upon and think, “Hey she did that, that is great!”?

I am not a millionaire, I barely make ends meet, so I have not given thousands of dollars to a worthy cause. So I am not a philanthropist, but if I did make millions I would be.  That is a high priority for me.

That is such a difficult question to answer.  I think my major accomplishments in life are that I took time to care about other people.  I teach, so I take time every day to care for other people’s children and to do my best to teach them to care about other people, too.  Will I get any great admiration for that?  Probably not, but it is what I do.  I spent lots of money and years in college to do that.

When I think about accomplishments and what to say, I think about what defines me.  When I hear of injustices being done to other people who are on this planet, do I turn a deaf ear or a blind eye, or do I do what I can to help?

I do what I can to help.  I am fortunate that lots of times helping can involve writing.  I can give my time to write.  I can only hope that it helps people.  Writing on the internet is powerful.  I believe it.  How many times today will people use the words, blogging for human rights, or bloggers unite, or reufgees united?  Will these words get listed and noticed by search engines?  Will people who want to know what people are saying find these words?  Can one small person join their words with hundreds or thousands of people and then believe that we made a difference?

I believe so.  I believe that one small voice joined with several other voices becomes a chorus, and as minds focus on the same goals things begin to happen.  Men walked on the moon, the nation of Israel was rebuilt, Gorbachav tore down the Berlin Wall, slaves in the US were granted freedom, and the first black man was elected President in the USA.  Individual voices unite to bring about change.

Now we unite to focus on Human Rights throughout the world.  While reading I read of such inhumanity to men and women, boys and girls that it puts a heavy burden for these people on my heart, and on my mind.  We must unite and keep writing and keep pushing forward for all the children of any age in the whole world.

Maybe alone our accomplishments will never stand out enough to win us our time in the spotlight for doing something great.  However in the eyes of God (yes I do believe in God), we are all created equally.  We are all given what we need, and we are given enough to make a difference in the lives of other people.  We are all sharing a great home on this planet.  We all have a responsiblility to care for each other.

I hope you can find time to visit some of the sites recommended by Blogger Unite and Refugees United.  If not today, soon.  If you can not post on your blog today, please find time to post soon.

    Dear Friend,

    after reading what you wrote above I can say: she’s a sensitive person with lots of good will. And that – in today’s world – really counts..

    I would like to thank you for visiting and for suggesting me to share it with Blogger Unite. I think that’s a good idea. I just sent them an email to help me with this.

    I wish every man and woman of good will were informed about the life and testimony of Witold Pilecki.

    Greetings from Krakow, Poland.

    Michal Tyrpa
    President of the Paradis Judaeorum Foundation
    Initiator of the “Let’s Reminisce About Witold Pilecki” initiative.

    P.S. As a Catholic, in September 17th I sent a letter to the Pope Benedict XVI to consider beatification of Witold Pilecki – miles christianus, pater familias, defensor Europe, imitator Christi.

    Thank you for your nice comment. I hope numerous people will visit your blog and read about Witold Pilecki’s Auschwitz Report. Freedom is not to be taken for granted. Freedom is something to be cherished, and free men and women everywhere should always remember those less fortunate, and those who died so we can enjoy our current lifestyle.

    Thanks again for your comment.

    Thanks to you!

    You are absolutely right.

    I wish I could join Bloggers Unite with “Witold Pilecki’s Auschwitz Report”, but I don’t know how to do this.
