Why Try to Make a Difference?

I volunteer too much. I speak my mind in person and on social media. Sometimes, no matter what you do, it all seems futile. But this song has resonated with me for years. It’s why I keep trying. You never know when something you do will affect another person. And that person helps another and so it goes. Yeah, it maybe something small, but so what? Why not want the world to be a better place?

The Change

Written By: Tony Arata; Wayne Tester

One hand reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
And they say,
“What good have you done by saving just this one”
It’s like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm
And I hear them saying,
“You’ll never change things
And no matter what you do
It’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so, this world will know
That it will not change me
This heart still believes
That love and mercy still exist
While all the hatreds rage
And so many say
“That love is all but pointless,
In madness such as this
“It’s like trying to stop a fire
With the moisture from a kiss”
And I hear them saying,
“You’ll never change things
And no matter what you do
It’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am
