Quote: “The best way to find out whether you’re on the right path? Stop looking at the path.”
Despite all the misery in the world its good to know that there are people who make tracks, the best ones. From the Global citizen website: This year due to COVID-19, 50 million children worldwide missed their essential vaccination against polio — a horrific and highly contagious disease that leaves children paralyzed. Resources had to be redirected away from these vulnerable kids in 52 countries as medical staff and volunteers supported the pandemic response.
One could look at a situation such as this and feel a sense of helplessness, instead the Global Citizen says we can be the generation that ends polio. They aim to do this by calling on world leaders to end polio with a huge international petition. Click here
