ONE DAY, ONE MESSAGE, ONE GOAL
TO INSPIRE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD
TO DO SOMETHING GOOD
NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL
FOR SOMEONE ELSE
Today is the World Humanitarian Day, a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. The day was designated by the General Assembly to coincide with the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, which killed 22 UN staff. Every day humanitarian aid workers help millions of people around the world, regardless of who they are and where they are. World Humanitarian Day is a global celebration of people helping people.
We are not just in this world to eat, drink, acquire degrees, get married, have kids, grow old, die and be buried. NO…there’s more to life than meets the eye. We need to make an impact, change a life, touch someone’s life positively and leave a mark in the sands of time. There are people who have been aligned in your path for you to reach. They may have dirty clothing with dirty hands and feet; they may not have the lovely scent from your cologne/perfume or speak posh/British English like you do. But they have been placed in your path so their lives could be better. Don’t refuse to do that one thing that will put a smile on someone’s face. Let their lives be better because YOU WERE HERE. This reminds me of my first article on this blog, I’LL BE THERE….It will inspire you.
You may not be a fire-fighter, in the army, emergency rescue team or the ambulance services; but there is something you can do for someone out there so that tomorrow when the story is being told, you’ll raise your hand and say I WAS HERE.
Listen to the song I WAS HERE by Beyonce…i was moved to tears.
Have a lovely week ahead.
