Do you think you have done something in your life to improve this world? If so. Could you explain?

Many people complain that this world (or life) is hostile. But...Have we examined our own behavior? Actually, do we contribute to make a better world?

Closing Statement from paco lopez

Once listened the whole contributions. I would say that we all, indeed are doing something for getting a better world, conciously or unconsciously, working in it or passively. I think it is very important to have the attitude or, say, the right fuel. But... How do you get the fuel? I would say: by appreciating the whole what you have: your health, your livelihood, your family, your job, even small details like that you have water to wash up or light in your home; many people in war or refugee camps not even have that. So I think:
If I see a beggar I will try to help.
If I see a sick person I will try to comfort.
If I see a sad person I will try to encourage.
If I see a war I will try to stop it.
I do not wanna make this post larger, so. I want to thank again ( I do not regret to say that there is the word most used for me in this conversation) Thanks TED, Thanks to all of you pen mates to attend and participate in this conversation. And especially Thanks God for inspiring me to be in this place, in this moment and with this post.

  • Feb 1 2014: Thank you for your reply. I know we can't help them all but, while talking to them you can if we really listen to what they are trying to say, we can hear the internal cry, for I would like to do something awesome in life, I think that we can tell the one's that have been living a life that is not full and wanting more out of life. There are so many that don't care about anything but themselves and can't or wont listen to anyone but what they want. the world has taught people to say not me. It's say to say this but we know that we live in a me world not a we can world.

    • Feb 1 2014: Hi Gene very nice to have you round here. I will make only a brief comment to your intervention. You know in religion there is a proverb that says more or les: God helps those that allow it. So as you are not God, Do your best because neither the prophets convince everyone, it is life and not you who will rate. All the best and happy weekend.
