Why do we want to change the world? Why are some people SO driven to turn it into a better place?
When someone says they want to improve the world, I do not automatically think better of them.
I know all too well that sometimes, people may be running from their internal demons. After all, it often seems easier to demand change than to start the painful process of self-improvement.
2020, for all its craziness, brought me many blessings. One of these blessings came in the form of the extraordinary Aliza Kim. Although I am not a Muslim, her writings on love, acceptance and understanding resonated strongly with me. When she told me this story, I knew I had to illustrate it.
You see, Aliza’s desire to change the world doesn’t come from a misguided sense of gratification or insecurity. It comes from a DEEP well of self-love and compassion.
After all, didn’t a wise man say, “I’m starting with the man in the mirror”?
