Change the world

There was a time when I believed that a better world would come about through systemic effort. If we just fix the system, the lowly will be lifted, mercy will prevail. Some of that’s true, but I never really saw it. I finally tired myself out and sat on the sideline. Then Sr. Kathleen, an Ursuline nun, introduced me to a young man in the sixth grade. He could barely read and his arithmetic was shaky. I remembered my multiplication tables, seven times six and so on, and I was a fair reader. A new world. I never looked back.
