In a society that perpetuates ignorance, discrimination, and poverty, it comes as little surprise that there exists such a well of unhappiness everywhere we look.
“Alack! Alas! All is rendered hopeless!” I hear tell your ardent cry, but fear thee not brave one! Not all is lost.
There exists a whole spectrum of methods with which a passionate individual may disperse such sadness. Hugs, handshakes, smiles, dancing, conversation; all you need is a sign expressing your intention (or lack of), the desire to perpetuate wellbeing and a consideration for practical concerns (drinking water, sunscreen, etc).
You can make a difference. Don’t be afraid to start small, with the people you love. Every bit counts.
