In the face of the state of the world, you ask me ‘What can one person do?’

There’s a nice story:

There was a big fire in the forest. And all the animals were trying to extinguish the fire. And they were all running to the river to carry water and to take water to where the fire was. And the big elephants were sucking up the water and spreading it over the fire.

And while an elephant was busy with that, he saw a very small bird, a very tiny bird, going to the river, take a little bit of water and flying to the fire.

And then the elephant said to the bird: What is that? What are you doing? This doesn’t make any difference.

And then the bird said to the elephant: Yes but that’s what I can do….

That’s the answer, you see? That’s what you’re supposed to do.

Life is never asking the impossible. Life is asking the possible.

So, do what you can. And let life take care of itself. As long as you are honest in what you are doing and integer in what you are doing, it will reflect. And life will make the perfect bouillabaisse.
