Helen Keller

"I am only one, but I am still one.  I cannot do everything, but I can still do something".

That is a quote by Helen Keller.  It is a reminder that everyone counts.  That each one of us amount to something, and that if we add ourselves together like bricks in a wall, we can build a house, we can hold back flooding water, we can withstand a fire.  I think her quote says two things, that even you alone can have an impact on the world if you just do something, be active, make a step.  You and only you might be the one and only one that could make a difference in someone's life.  You, on that day, at that time, might say the thing that helps a person see what they've been blinded from before.  Your hand that lifts them up, might the only hand that comes along that day. 
However, we as individuals can also build a team, each of us individually added together make a stronger bond.  Hand in hand or arm in arm we can stand for something.  We can change the world.
Scripture says in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow…if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken". 
So step forward, be the only one if that is what it takes.  Be the leader, the first one, the one that others follow.  Be the cornerstone that builds the wall. 
Just do something.

Encourage One Another
