Many people see the things that are wrong in our society. Many people even have ideas about possible solutions. Unfortunately, most people have been taught and have learned that “They don’t make a difference.” They have learned that their voice or their solutions will never reach the right audience. So, most people spend their time talking about what is wrong but spending very little time investing in bringing solutions to “life.”
I also know that there are many people who talked, they offered solutions and even tried to bring about reasonable and sensible change, but they were quickly “squashed” by those who wanted to keep “things as they are.”
