Every personal act is always connected to the global community because every action is like a pebble thrown into a lake. The stone not only increases the volume of the lake, albeit a tiny amount, it also sends out strong, visible ripples that quickly spread out into ever-increasing wider circles.
“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.”
-Robert Francis Kennedy
The state of the global community cannot be blamed on others because society is not some vague, esoteric entity that cannot be changed. Real, living, breathing people make up society. They can decide to affect humanity by loving each other as much as they love themselves. Each personal act of kindness affects all of humanity just as each act of violence weakens the fabric of society and strikes at the core of each man, woman and child.
