In the macro sense of things, I’m overly detached. I think that’s because I realize there isn’t much I can do.
I can’t stop wars.
I can’t save dying kids.
I can’t stop a person being assaulted 5000 miles from here.
In the micro sense of things, I’m overly attached. I think that’s because I realize I can do something if not a lot.
I can feed the homeless man.
I can be kind to the waitress and leave a good tip.
I can help a kid with his studies because his family is involved in other things to do so.
If you walk up to me and say you need my help, I will believe you.
Yes, I am fooled sometimes but at the off chance of them telling the truth I’ll take the risk of being a fool.
I can hope to act locally and help globally.
Everything is intricately connected and every action as well as word counts.
Our world needs saving.
