WE ALL WANT CHANGE BUT CHANGE MUST START FROM US

"We all want change but in order to make it happen we must be part of that change and more importantly it should start from us." In a reply I made in a forum on Poverty Eradication in Africa (http://projects.tigweb.org/WALEX/discuss/thread/424841), I was reminded that I also belong to the third world country. We also experience the same struggles dealing with the issues of our own.I also do believe that even great nations has their own problems and encounter defeats as others nations. This is reality. There is no perfect country and no perfect individual who has everything they want and everything they need will be given favorably in an instant. We work for it, make the best decisions and plan. Most of the time we wait for the fruits of our labor and it is the same thing with change that doesnít work overnight.We all want change and it is now the necessity to grow and move beyond the old boundaries of our selves and of the past but in order to make it happen we must be part of it, have the involvement to be tested including the winning and the loosing experience and as a nation, it is being brave to take the risk. I believe that the hardest risk to take is that change will start from us.Many countries in the course of history make different kinds of drastic and thoughtful moves because they believe in something and they hold on to that. Their visions became their driving force to fuel themselves to take the necessary risk of challenging their culture, religion and their own beliefs. As far as I am concern, none ever succeeded without sacrifice and their sacrifice is isnít simple or easy at all.Change is no longer as hard as it is before and less of a threat to our stability. In our present age and era of continuous search for life in the field of science, mathematics, psychology and others, we find pleasures to see series of revolution of change in many aspects of our lives in good and better ways and our search for change continuous.
