This is one inspirational story I really like. Its from Teaching your children about God By Henry Holt.

There is a marvellous story of a man who once stood before God, his heart breaking from the pain and injustice in the world.
"Dear God", he cried out, "look at all the suffering, the anguish and the distress in the world. Why don't you send help?"
God responded," I did send help. I sent you".
When we tell our children that story, we must tell them that each one of them was sent to help repair the broken world -- and that it is not the task of an instant,or of a year but of a lifetime!!

All too often we stand by the side, shake our heads and move on. We all feel -- what can I do??And then we wait for someone else to do something.
Surely you can do something! Maybe just smile and say a few soothing words. It makes more difference than you can imagine.
Believe me. Its my experience. No one can take the pain or discomfort away. But kindness and compassion can certainly make it more tolerable.

It maybe just a drop in the ocean, but if everyone does something small but meaningful, we can heal the world and make it a better place
