As 2017 begins, I am reminded of a poem I read many years ago called “I am only one” by Edward Everett Hale. In a world with so much trouble and problems, it is easy to get overwhelmed. It is easy to wonder if I can make a difference in this life.
The poem goes like this:
“I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something I can do.”
