I have this thing about making a difference in the world around me. Do people care about making a difference any more? I was actually sounded out once to see if I wanted to get involved in local government, ie. as a council candidate. This immediately followed a comment something like “gee, I didn’t realise you actually cared about the community”. My response was “screw you” and I didn’t take up the offer. Most people do not understand their own capacity for making a difference. I just raised more than $6000 for a charity just by going on a diet. OK, I had a publicity device at my disposal that helped somewhat, but the point is I did it because I could. Being a self-centred shameless self-promoter came a distant second, I’m sure.
My question is, what difference are you making?
