accepting responsibility (link)

We ignore dirty dishes in the sink, trash on the sidewalk, and the shyperson at the party. We convince ourselves that we deserve to suffer,that we’re incapable of changing, or that we’re just not lucky. We push aside thoughts of poverty in India, inequality in Africa, or starvation the world over because “it’s too big; someone else will fix it; it’snot my problem.” Except it is our problem, because we can do somethingto change it.
