I wanna make the world a better place

How do I make the world a better place? Discover a cure for cancer? Eradicate hunger? I don't have the tools, knowedge or finance for that.

Should I try and make my country a better place? Run for president? Institute a powerful new lobby? I don't know if I have the balls, guts or the ability to do that.

Maybe I can make my city a better place? Clean up the streets? Shelter the homeless? Cure the addicts? I don't think I can do that.

I'll have to start with myself. Every second of every day is filled with infinite possibilites. A good deed, a friendly butterfly smile can ripple across millions, through worlds upper and lower. Delving into Torah, carrying out G-d's Word can cause a chain reaction through the unfathomable spiritual realms.

If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

2r - Bad was the first album I bought. He went downhill from there.

OC - thanks. Not really mine, it's a story they tell about the Chofetz Chaim I think.

DA - I do plenty of that, the only thing it changes is my waistline!

Ohh noooo you didn't get into the Michael lyrics.

I thought those had been locked away where kids couldn't get their hands on them.

I do appreciate the sentiment, though. Been studying my deen myself.

You can bring Redemption to the World by writing on the main page that the story is from the Chafetz Chaim..instead of it being in the "fine print" :-)

Twenny, what's "deen"? Nothing wrong with MJ's lyrics, it's who he serenades with them that is troubling!

Jameel, You got a Makor?

Cloojew, looking forward to it.

LS, not sure I can handle the pressure, but working on it.

deen=faith. But not religion faith. Like devotion. I used to know the hebrew word, but I forgot. I haven't been back in my old neighborhood in a while.

peace

Karlster, You and Reb Zusia baby. Damn scary, but we can't live like that.
