I am a Powerful Unstoppable Force

I am a powerful unstoppable force, and so are you.
Before you call me crazy, think about it.
We live in an age where we are extremely “powerful.”
We can get from Tampa Florida to France in 8 hours. We can have a face to face talk with a person in India over Skype…. For Free.
We can take medicines and have surgeries to save our lives. We can have c-sections instead of dying in labor. We can eat nutritious fresh fortified food all year long by simply walking into the grocery store. We have access to information about anything we want to know by searching in google. We can write a novel, a short story, a blog, a tweet and share it with anyone on the planet… instantly.

If we transported Leonardo Da Vinci, one of the most intelligent people of history, to our modern age, he would think we possessed magical powers. He would probably be dumbfounded. If we tried to explain to him how to use a computer, he wouldn’t even have a frame of reference for it.

Now lets think about how we use our power… Do we use our almost infinite strength to do good or do we waste it? I used to, like a lot of people, spend time wishing I had been born into another era, one of the past, where times were “simpler” but the more I read history and the more I think about the blessings we have today, I realize that we need to use our energies wisely. We must not waste this gift that our generation has been blessed with. We must use our powerful unstoppable force for Good.
