I can change my sphere

My heart cries out for my nation Zimbabwe. I have watch the nation deteriorate over the last wo decades. A shona proverb says, 'Rivers are now streams'. Strong and mighty rivers can over the years lose their vitality and give in to the changes of times. I have watched things change in Zimbabwe but my heart still believes that this nation can resurrect. I remember as a child looking at countries like Mozambique and Malawi. They were small in our eyes. Now Mozambique is rising. I hope to see the day when our children will live in a normal society, a society where every child gets a fair chance chance in life, where no children go to bed hungry, where women do not have to walk for miles to get a bucket of water, where health services are available for all, education for all.
I cannot really change much, but i can change the little I can in my sphere.
Maybe I can influence those around and together we can make a difference in our nation.Maybe as women we can birth a new nation, a new Zimbabwe, a new Africa.

This message is very uplifting- changing your sphere. So often (as you well put) we see our world around us crumbling and in the big picture things look IMPOSSIBLE to change. Yet if we take a step back we will see that we indeed can change our "sphere" as you so eloquently put. Make small changes in our own space- smile more to lift others spirits and our own, treat our family (parents, children, spouse, etc) with kindness and love, share what we do have, etc.

I support you fully in this endeavor. I send you much peace and love hoping that your country rises to the greatness it deserves!

Much Peace,

Hello Sharese. Thank you for

Hello Sharese. Thank you for the comment. They often say that if you can see it, you can have it. We can have the change we long for and we can also be the change that we long for.
