In my world, there are no statistics. There are only people, and every life is precious. There are no numbers, only the human face. Every single story, every invisible tear. I can't know all the faces, all the stories in the world. But what I can do, I must. That which my ears have heard, I cannot ignore. That which my eyes have seen, I can't turn away. If I could listen to one story, if I could wipe away one tear, if I could embrace one soul, if I could say one encouraging word, I must. This is our greatest calling, my soul's purpose. I'm not here to eliminate poverty, eradicate diseases or to stop bloody wars. I am one person. I cannot solve it all. But I was created to love, and out of that, seek justice. That is one thing I CAN do. If I don't even do this, am I not the most heartless in humanity?
