Me to We
I read a book called Me to We and it is about finding meaning in a material world. It isn’t just a book to read. It is a movement. A way to live life.
Me to We is an approach to life that leads us to recognize what is truly valuable, make new decisions about the way we want to live, and redefine the goals we set for ourselves and the legacy we want to leave. Above all, it creates new ways of measuring meaning, happiness, and success in our lives, and makes these elusive goals attainable at last. Amazon
Yesterday their was tragedy at the Boston Marathon. It is a horrific event but it seems like things like this get so much attention they are glorified by the media in some way. Don’t think for a minute that other countries aren’t watching and wondering what is going on here. My mom was watching it and it just blew me away how much they spotlighted on the negative aspects of what happened. It makes me sick. This morning I turned on the TV and heard about it again. Only this time the news report was about the people running towards the scene of the explosions. It was about all the people helping. The good there is in the world in spite of the bad things happening.
I say that because there is a lot of bad going on in the world. I get it. I also know there is SO much good that we tend to overlook. We focus on the bad things happening we fail to see the good. I want to focus on the good.
Me to We shouldn’t be overlooked. It is about people doing good in the world to better the world.
“We Day and We Act
Locally active, globally aware.
We Day is an educational event and the movement of our time—a movement of young people leading local and global change. We Day is tied to the yearlong We Act program, which offers curricular resources, campaigns and materials to help turn the day’s inspiration into sustained activation.
We Act is the blueprint for young people to take action as agents of social change.
Why? Because we believe that we are the first generation that can truly end the worst forms of poverty, embrace we thinking and weacting and remove the barriers to youth being agents of social change. And there’s no time to waste: every single day we have the opportunity to make this world a better place. And everyone has a role to play.
How are we doing this? By pushing forward the boundaries of charity, social entrepreneurship and creating change. It’s a worldwide movement that proves anyone can change the world—and revolutionizes how we make that change.
In order to succeed, Free the Children and Me to We have forged a relationship, and work together through We Day.” We Day
