I am not a famous rock star. I do not have a lot of political power. I am just me. I do my best to treat others right. I try to be the best human I can possibly be. I am grateful for my life and the chances that I have received so far. There is nothing that I regret. My life was not always easy, I admit, but when I had to rely on support, there was always an invisible power at work to bring me what I needed most in that moment. Whenever I can, I also engage myself to make a difference in the lives of others.
Supporting others does not need to be complicated or overwhelming. The recipe for successful support can be very simple: be there at the right time and at the right moment. I believe that people sense it when you have a gentle and open heart. It is the key to make people trust you and bond with you. I feel that we are not alone in this world and that it is our task to help each other. My parents raised me with wonderful values and in my own way, I do my utmost best to give these values to everyone that crosses my path.
In my eyes, you will see the reflection of justice and gentleness. We have enough food and clothes to feed and dress everyone, we only must ensure that everything gets there where it is wanted most. I believe in justice and gentleness. Justice means to me that we have to use our personal power to allocate resources wisely and efficiently. With gentleness, I love to refer to the process of doing everything with a human approach. Every one of us remains human, in whatever circumstances we live, rich or poor, our heart continues to beat in the same way.
Every group of people that engages in the values of justice and gentleness with a human approach gets my full recognition. I am following the same journey in life. The time is right to change our thinking: we really can transform our lives by following a new way of supporting each other in this life. Every time when we act with efficiency, reliability and straightforwardness, we show how much we really care. Words do not mean a thing when we do not tie these to support actions. True support from the heart is reflected in our gentle actions. Let us move mountains together. With a human touch.
