It can be hard and frightening some days to look at the collective brokenness in our world and tell yourself, “I can make a difference.”
The issues seem so large. So inexplicable. Vast.
And we appear or feel so small in their shadow.
We cannot give up hope. We cannot give into despair or the ennui of doing nothing.
Every little action counts. As Mother Teresa said,
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
And in every ripple there is the possibility of awakening another to the power they have to cast a stone too.
At Tales from the Backroad, photographer Mary Hone shares stunning photos of the Wild Horses she loves to visit and asks, What is the future of our wild horses? They are at risk, an endangered species because man wants their land, and the horses have no voice.
Take a moment to visit and see what Mary is doing as her part to create a healing ripple of change.
In Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation, he talks about the need for all of us to play our part in saving this beautiful planet. His Climate Change meditation is worth the read.
