“Every person born in this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique,” said Martin Buber. We are all born into the world, totally pure and unaffected by the outside forces. Our destiny is all within our own hands since we were born. How good or how bad our future is all lies with how positive and creative our minds are in seeking that special gift we have in all of us. It could be the gift of love, the gift of leadership, the gift of thoughtful thinking, the gift of sharing, or the gift of giving and so on. It is our own unique identity

By identifying and polishing up that gift, it would help to make a better society. Everybody would need love as comfort all the time. Those who are confused and lost would need someone to lead them towards the right direction. For those who have worked hard in the society, they would want some appreciation and gratitude. Other than that, some would want to share their knowledge with another in order to grow together for a better future. What about those who were born poor, sick and homeless? What will happen if there is no one with kindness and compassion to help them?

The world is filled with lots of confusion and suffering. Everyone in it has the unique task to make it better. It would not harm anyone if everyone were to extend the hands out and touch the world with an extra bit of love and kindness. You do not have to wait for an opportunity to do so. You can always lend the ears to someone in the old folks’ home, surprised them with a little gift of love and affection. Do something way out of your norm and see what will unfold. After all, there are many ways you can help in making the world a better place to be in.
