The Long Walk To Justice

I wonder whether here in Malaysia we'll be more caught up with the concert rather than the cause ...

Make Poverty History
"Every single day, 30,000 children are dying as a result of extreme poverty. This year, 2005, we finally have the resources, knowledge and opportunity to end this shameful situation." That's how the website begins ... we're prone to the blame game ... but it's efforts like this that gets us to "begin" doing something aboout it.

Global Call to Action against Poverty
As usual Malaysia is quiet about this .. :-( However, I do want to take a little time here to say to those who are doing something about it ... Keep up the good work! You are making a difference ... even though few people know it ...

The UN Millenium Project
A young friend mentioned this to me yesterday .. so I checked out the goals and tha name Jeffrey Sachs online with him. Wow! 10 more years to go ... Where do we fit in?

It's a Long Walk to Justice indeed ... the first step for me is Compassion...
This is global issue ... I can start locally ...
Together we could do so much ... it's got to start somewhere ... starting with myself is a good place to begin.
Walk is more important than talk ... but without the talk I may not have started the walk ...
These seem big steps for humankind in our generation .. almost overwhelming .. . but baby steps are possible ... hope is necessary!
