Take Advantage of What's Available to You....  
There are so many opportunities available to us... yet, how often we forget. Hard work and dedication are keys to living a successful life. Opportunities are wasted if we don't make full use of them by adding our own sweat and tears. Yes, we all have our day-to-day trials and tribulations... some much more than others. Occasionally we need to step back and take a look at the bigger picture to reaffirm what our core values are, confirm our beliefs. It is time to remind myself to look outside the 'World of Crista" and bring back into view "Humanity".

Here is a brief story of a child named Kassim Ouma, who at the age of 6, was forced to become a child soldier in Uganda. I can go on about my outrage how our children are ripped of their childhood, in order to fight the man's war, for man's power and greed. Yes, I am horrified and it makes me extremely heart-stricken. What this reminds me though, is that there are so many opportunities here, to improve others' lives.... yet, how often do we choose to look the other way? Don't. Take that step, even if it seems small or may go unnoticed... and remember that the wave of goodwill travels far. "Never The Same" by By L. Lamor Williams, World Ark contributor:
