Can I live on this planet doing more good than harm?
Can one person can make a difference?
I really enjoyed watching impact man. Watching this man and his family live the way they did truly opened my eyes. I really liked the ideas that he bought into it despite all the criticism he received. For him, the whole project was not about everyone living in those conditions for the rest of their lives, instead it was about individual action. Often times it is forgotten that individual action is the most important action to take. A lot of people are concerned with the changing of the world that they forget the first place you have to change is your home and yourself before you can change the world. He did not expect everyone to live like this but simply see that it was possible. They worked on the project for a year and are healthier than they were before, let alone alive! Many people think they will simply DIE without half the things that this family sacrificed for this experienced but that is only because that is the culture we were raised in and we really believe we will. His family was truly inspiring and I hope more people see his video and see that change is not inevitable. The only thing you need is optimism and that will get you through anything.
