What do we do? Say hi to a stranger on the bus. Take time to talk to a homeless person? I don't know.
I heard "do something that matters" on a CBC radio interview with Robert Amsterdam.
"Robert Amsterdam is a lawyer with the firm Amsterdam and Peroff. He also blogs on global politics and business at Robert Amsterdam.com." Amsterdam has been fighting for democracy with the cases he takes on. Representing underdogs against entrenched oligarchies, Amsterdam is a man of conviction.
When interviewed he was asked why? He said that it Matters; "to do something that matters". I like that.
Not sure if it applies to the everyday things, but what does matter?
I like to think we can all do something that matters. But there is a degree of what matters isn't there. After all a professional athlete does something that matters; entertainment. As well a Doctor, a police officer, a Fireman/woman does things that matter as well. But I think what Amsterdam was referring to was something else as well. No doubt that people that are in the public service do things that matter.
I also think that other people do things that matter as well, even if in different degrees. The single Mom who feeds their kids and keeps them warm. The person that volunteers at a shelter. The manager that gives her best at running the office or the business. All things matter.
What I hope is that we take the time to appreciate what matters. Everyday things do matter. We need to remember what matters. Life matters. Living matters. Being kind matters. Being respectful matters. Talking up for Right matters.
Saying hi to a stranger matters. Smiling matters.
