I receive Bug from World Vision every so often.  The quote on the front page caught my eye:

If you think you’re too small to make a difference you haven’t been to bed with a mosquito in your room.

 Mosquito - The power of …

Great quote – we can use all kinds of excuses to not bother doing things, the classic concept that it isn’t worth the effort, we won’t manage to change the world.  In some ways we are right, a one man campaign won’t necessarily make a large difference, but individuals can and have time and time again made a difference.  Just think of people such as Wilbeforce, Mandela, Mother Theresa and the way in which they changed the world’s perspective on issues.  So what is it that you need to take a stand for, what is it that you just need to get on and do it.

  1. Beautiful Chris – thanks. You have no idea how much I needed to read that – and I aspire to live it too.

    :: knowing that tomorrow morning my work will be cheerfully
    :: waiting for me, demanding my full attention again, as it
    :: should, but none the worse for having had to wait.

    Sadly tomorrow is my Fieldwork deadline for my degree and will fail if I don’t take care of it today. The only thing getting me through the stress and high blood pressure is the thought of the three months of relative ‘sabbath’ which will follow.

    Right that’s enough procrastination – onward!
