Can one speck make a difference?

The world is HUGE and we are only one speck. Can one speck make a difference? Some say it can't, some say it can. One speck can make a clean canvas masterpiece. I guess I'm a visionary. I want to have a positive impact on the world. I want to help out the needy. Someone who brought hope to an otherwise hopeless situation. Do you think I can make it?

Of course yes, it can! Just think all of us (specks) to be computer monitor's pixel. What if 99% of the screen is white and the 1% or 1 pixel is differnt from others. It does make a differnce. Probably you are not the only spec thinking a differnt way - may be there are a few people who think like you and act like you at the same time. I can give you an example on this. I am an eco friendly person and instead of talking about the matter i like to bring things to action. I make sure i carry a coofee mug with me to avoid 'paper' cups, i take a walk whenever possible, and switch off the lights and fans when there is no one using it, close the tap tightly to avoid water draining, and many more. When you make all these your habit, the person living with you for sure will be infected with the same thought. :) so one speck doe make a change.

That's a great idea. I should be doing the same thing. At least one person in our house is making a difference. I mean, I do conserve water and electricity but not most of the time. So, from now on I'll try to make it as a habit for the other people in the house to do the same in the long run. Thanks for a nice idea. One speck really makes a difference. I hope everyone can be his/her own speck.
