"Positive change happens when an individual overcome their fears and selfish ambitions.  When envy and pride does not govern our thoughts and decisions we can objectively look at a situation and contribute to hope. A person without hope is a person without vision, a person without vision has no purpose and a person without purpose cannot produce proactive change. Too little are done for our communities in villages around our country.  The feeling of hopelessness is evident in the people’s eyes as they aimlessly dwell seeking.  I often get the feeling that they are forgotten as though love for our fellow human being depends on our emotions instead of on a decision we make to contribute to a better future.

The Forgotten needs a voice, I am one. What about you?"
