"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 something that I can do." - Helen Keller

It's so easy to feel overwhelmed by the weight of my own problems, let alone the world's problems. If I've got so much crap to deal with, how can I be expected to try and change the world? What little I have to offer won't make an ounce of difference anyway, right?

Not according to the most incredible blind, deaf woman the world has ever known. Frick, I hate feeling convicted because it reminds me that I actually have to get off my butt and do something once in a while. Damn you, Miss Keller. Damn you.
