Light the way

Never underestimate the impact one person can have. Never underestimate the difference you can make.

At the People’s Choice Awards this week, Tyler Perry received the Favourite Humanitarian Award. Take a couple of minutes to watch his speech below because it is truly inspiring.

Perry talks about how all buildings are required to undergo a Life Safety Review before they are built to ensure they have the proper equipment in an emergency, including fire extinguishers, sprinkles, and back up lights.

He says it is the same with life – if the lights go out, whose light will we seek to lead us out of the darkness?

We all have the capability to light the way for others, to make the difference when times are tough. It could be a helping hand, a positive attitude, compassion and empathy, or just taking a moment to sit and listen.

Perry said, “No matter how dark it gets, we have to be a light for each other.”

Shine on.
