As Mother Teresa once said: “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.” and “If you can’t feed 100 people, then feed just one.”
We often think that we are just one person and can’t make a difference. Just think how powerful we can become if every person helps just one person. The world would change drastically. Just as snowflakes, working together, create a powerful event, we can create an avalanche of love, kindness and empathy.
As I was looking through youtube, in search of videos for my morning video series, I stumbled across this wonderful video, short, but quite inspiring. As is indicated in the video description, this video was developed by a class of 8th grade students at Kalispell Middle School, in Kalispell, Montana.
“The vision was to create a thought provoking short film that instills a challenge to the viewer to look at their own life, their own relationships, and their own sphere of influence, and see where a little empathy could help change the world around them. In working in a middle school for the past 5 years, I’ve seen the power that a single act of empathy can have on a hurting student, and hope that this message will inspire viewers, just as my own students have inspired me in creating this. Please share in our vision for a more empathetic world.”
