It's Up to You

~How about a Smile~!!

There are so many ways of helping others and many don't cost you anything. You need to serve people with everything or anything you have.

serve them with time, with money, with your knowledge or anything you have, but please do serve. Its is not for others, you require it for yourself. The research suggests that all those who spend 4-6 hours in various voluntary activities on a weekly basis their average age is 6-8 years more. Do something that people might miss you after you die? I don't understand what went wrong with us? What happened to all of our goodness? Why the followers of the greatest Prophet in the history of mankind who taught us a lesson of selfless contribution are lagging behind in service. Just imagine if each and every one of us in the population of about 140 million spare 4 hours a week for voluntary work, it would give us 560 million hours a week of voluntary work. Now just imagine what this nation could become if we did that much of voluntary work on a weekly basis.

Let clarify it more with a peace of Poem.

One song can spark a moment,

One flower can wake a dream,

One tree can start a forest,

One bird can herald spring,

One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul,

One star can guide a ship at sea,

One word can frame the goal,

One vote can change the nation,

One sunbeam lights a room,

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will conquer gloom,

One step must start each journey,

One word must start each prayer,

One hope will raise our spirits,

One touch can show you care,

One voice can speak of wisdom,

One heart can know what's true,

One life can make the difference :)

YOU SEE IT'S UP TO YOU!! :)

Dear Hina

You ask such an important question. Yes, why is it not common teaching to think and act in and for community. I too believe that much more would be possible if this were more widely taught. I love the idea that this can lengthen our lives. I also love your poem!

In sisterhood,

Tam
