Shine A Light

Updated: Feb 1, 2023

September 20, 2021

On 9/11 I watched a CNN special called “Shine A Light.” The show was in memory of the World Trade Center disaster, where more than 3000 people lost their lives. The show was filled with memories, messages and entertainment. I wondered about the theme and tried to understand how we, all people, can shine a light to make this world a better place.

I ruminated on the title and concentrated on what else I could do to brighten my light. I decided to go to my contact list and reach out to a number of friends to have a conversation on what we can each do to make a difference in life and in the world.

How can you shine a light?

You can be kinder to yourself and each other - be a good neighbour.

You can hold on to hope and share your power.

You can do a good deed for yourself.

The world would be a better place if each of us contribute to change.

“The world belongs to you so don’t let it change you.” – rapper, Common

You can change it and make it a better place for yourself and all of us.

“Only light can drive out darkness”. - Martin Luther King

Put a battery in your torch and keep your light bright!

Work towards being a bigger and better person!
