I WANTED TO CHANGE THE WORLD…

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.

I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.

When I found I couldn’t change my nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change my town & as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realized the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realized that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation & I could indeed have changed the world.
