one by one

Changing the world is too big a concept for me. The idea inspires and frightens me in one intake of breath. I don’t know where to start. With this or that or here or there. So much so that I end up doing neither this nor that and I am neither here nor there. Trapped amongst every cause I could live for, I’m more frustrated than ever. 

And then I read Somaly Mam’s words. This will be how I will live with the sea that is before me, starting from now…

“I only want to change this small life that I see standing in front of me, which is suffering. I want to change this small real thing that is the destiny of one little girl. And then another, and another, because if I didn’t I wouldn’t be able to live with myself” – Somaly Mam.
