Home of the CommuniD BBQs

Davey reminds me of Ghandi

This afternoon I was at the Community BBQ in Mt. Clemens.  I got a chance to meet a man named Davey. Davey was at one of the BBQs we did last summer partnering with the Macomb County Coalition Against Homelessness (7/16/09). He didn’t know today’s BBQ was put together by the same group as last summer.  So he started telling me about going last summer and how good it was to have been there. His brother won a tent in a drawing that day.  He said it was good because that night it poured rain, but they didn’t have to get wet.  It was a great reminder that what we do now has long lasting effects in the future that we may never see. But it matters.

I’m reminded of something Ghandi wrote:

My dear,

Almost anything you do is insignificant, But it is very important that you do it.

It’s the bigger picture that counts. As human beings our individual everyday acts are insignificant, but as a whole and over the course of time that insignificant looses it’s -in and becomes significant.

That’s why it’s very important you do it. Not for yourself, but for humanity; Countless insignificant acts are significant – they do make a difference.

Think of it like this, the steps you take today are insignificant in the long run, but they help you achieve the long run.

Almost anything you do is insignificant, But it is very important that you do it.

Truly yours,
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
