"Didn't you notice, Miss, that there's a lot of bigger problems in the world?"
"Of course I did, but I'm going to work on the ones in my own little space first before I move on to them."
In light of that conversation, I give you my tough-as-nails sister-in-law who protested in the street for the army to come and fix the local school's speed bump. It was on that same spot in 2010 where I witnessed a child being hit and killed by a bus. She felt strongly that accidents like that should never happen again so she stood in the street and demanded action. It was caught on video and broadcast.
Again, I get that a speed bump won't stop all the problems in the world but GOD BLESS my sister-in-law. She did her part (mashahallah) to work on what she could.
