Dreaming’s Mission to Empower You

Margaret Mead never doubt that small group change world

I thank those who have liked Dreaming Together for a Better World’s facebook page. There will soon be 100 likes. The purpose of this group has always been to empower you that one person can make a difference. It’s not so much in the large acts that we create a better world. It’s in those seemingly small acts of kindness — a smile, handshake, a cup of coffee and some of your time, volunteering for a local charity or food bank, groceries to a person or family in need,  that all of us can make an impact on the lives of others.

In order for more people to feel this sense of empowerment, could you please get your friends to like my facebook page?

I also welcome your ideas on how we can have better communities.

What issues would you like to have addressed by your political representatives? How do you feel you can best go about making those ideas heard? What could all of us working together do to bring the issues to the attention of community and political officials?

For those who feel nothing will ever change with unfair government policies, how do you think we can get those who formulate them to think differently?

What can your community do to advocate for those in need in your community? How could you help your political representative make the government listen to the concerns of your community?

I know. There are more questions than answers, but we have to start somewhere. Perhaps, working together we can come up with answers to some of these questions.

I encourage you to do what you can in your community to improve the lives of others.

It’s all too easy to say that the economy is the number one issue, so dealing with poverty is a low priority. But if we then fail to address the pervasive problem of poverty, how does that help the economy?

If we don’t spend the money to invest in people with disabilities (and for the record I hate that word because all of us have abilities even if they have physical and/or developmental challenges), that won’t help our troubled economy.

Continue to believe that we can have a better world. If we lose that hope, then nothing will ever change.

I leave you with this challenge. Think of one thing you can do to improve the quality of life for someone else and then go and do it. Then, tell me how doing that thing made you feel.

Thank you to those who still believe we can have a better world. You inspire and encourage me to keep hoping that this is possible.

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  1. Great encouragement. We can all change our little corner of the world. That is the challenge and it is enough.

  2. Joseph, thanks for the comment. Yes, it is enough.
