There was once a man who wanted to change the world.
After much time, when he couldn’t, he decided he wanted to change his nation.
After more time passed and nothing changed, he decided to change his village.
More time passed and no change was made, so he decided to change his family.
When he couldn’t change his family, he decided to change himself, only realizing too late that if he had done that first, he would have:
Changed his family, which would
Influence his village to change and in turn would
Inspire his nation to change and in doing so would
Become the beacon of change the world would follow.
