Past the seeker as he prayed came the crippled and the beggar and the beaten. And seeing them… he cried, “Great God, how is it that a loving creator can see such things and yet do nothing about them?” God said, “I did do something. I made you.”

I am but one person. I am not very strong. I am not a brilliant mind. I am not famous. I am not special in any way. I am but one person, so what can I do?

If we ever wondered if one could change the world, for both good and for bad, you need look no farther than at the history-makers in the last 5000 years. From Pharaoh to David to Jesus, from Lenin to Hitler to Eisenhower, from Kennedy to Nixon to Bin Laden, all these were but one person, whose impact on history forever changed the world in which we live.

Never was more evident an example of the power of one than the Iowa Caucus during the last Presidential bid…..where 8 or so votes….8 VOTES….changed the outcome of a power struggle for a potential United States President. And the power of one was never more poignant than when exhibited in the movie, “Pay It Forward”, which, as you all know, was based on a book whose author probably had no concept of the change in mankind’s kindness to others less fortunate, would result from her singular vision of what might be possible when one single person dares to do one good thing.

So never again, EVER, doubt the miracle that can be accomplished by one person simply saying “I BELIEVE” and then “I CAN” and then “I WILL”, and then DOING IT!

THE POWER OF ONE!

You must always remember…

__

Life can be a challenge…Life can seem impossible…

It’s never easy, when so much is on the line…

But you can make a difference…

With courage you can set things right…

The gift to dream and make dreams real

is yours and mine…

The power of one!

Begins with believing!

It starts in the heart…

Then flows through the soul…

And changes the world!

Imagine how life will be…

When we stand in unity…

Each of us holds the key…

To the power of one!

Each of us is chosen…

There’s a mission just for you…

Just look inside…

You’ll be surprised…

What you can do…

The power of one!

Begins with believing!

It starts in the heart…

Then flows through the soul…

And changes the world!

Imagine how life will be…

When we stand in unity…

Each of us holds the key…

To the power of one!

Then one by one…

We can make the world…

A much better place!

The power of…

ONE!

Begins with believing!

It starts in the heart…

Then flows through the soul…

And changes the world!

Imagine how life will be!

When we stand in unity!

Each of us holds the key…

It’s inside of you and me!

Each of us holds the key…

To the power of one!

The power of one…
