Nobody would notice, nobody would care – few would be affected if I was not there.
Have you ever wondered how important you are or argued how unimportant you are?
Invariably, the question is relative: compared to what? … for whom? … and why does it matter?
We are somebody to someone until we are nobody to anyone – some do that in life, most do it in death, and few people are revered or remembered very long or very much. Yes, our history books and literature in every field are littered with tens of thousands of brilliant minds – writers, scientists, great leaders, and great followers. Still, of the billions upon billions who’ve populated the earth, most are invisible and unknown. And most not cared for except for close family and friends. Is it any wonder then, why governments and large organizations show such little value for life and for lives?
Nobody is my name, but soon nobody would remember, if I wasn’t there – nobody would care.
Each of us needs to worry less about all that and worry more about what we are doing about what we care about – because nobody cares as much or understands as well the things we care about the most.
