Changing the World: December 12 – Buying ‘Good Gifts’

This is a terrific idea – buying ‘Good Gifts.’ The idea behind this suggestion is simply to buy a gift for someone in a needy country via a website and then let someone know you have bought a gift on their behalf. Don’t quite get it? Nevermind – just check out the web site for more information. What a great idea.

Changing the World: November 11 – Peace for a Moment

Today’s suggestion for changing the world was doing something to support peace. The suggestion encouraged people to spend a moment to reflect on what I could do to prevent war.

In reality there is probably very little that I can do to prevent wars from occurring. It is once again a noble goal – to prevent war and ensure peace. I just don’t think it will be possible in this world.

The other part of the suggestion was to remember those who have fought and died in wars, especially with this being Armistice/Remembrance Day. Where I work the flags were lowered leading up to 11 am. They were raised again shortly afterwards.

Being that I was working I was unable to observe the 2 minutes silence at 11 am. However, the sacrifice made by those defending our way of life and seeking to return the world to peace, were on my mind.

Anzac Day is going to be an event I will be involved in in future years – not in any official capacity, but to be at the local dawn service to remember those who fought for this country, including various family members.
