Something amazing in common

What do Walt Disney, Martin Luther King Jr., Joan of Arc, Michael Jackson, Winston Churchill, Amelia Earhart, George Washington, Mark Twain,  Betsy Ross, Abraham Lincoln, Elvis Presley,  Alexander Graham Bell, Louis Pasteur, Helen Keller, Henry Ford, Steven Jobs, Ludwig van Beethoven, John F. Kennedy, Bill Gates, Dolly Parton, Neal Armstrong, Albert Einstein, Queen Elizabeth and Tom Hanks have in common with you and me?

Are you ready? You might be surprised. Can you imagine what the world might be like if these amazing people, and many more like them, had never been born?

It is fair to say that some songs would have never been sung, some movies would have never been seen, some diseases would have never been cured and some lives would have never been freed.

You get the idea. Some people just make the world a better place. Can we not help but wonder if perhaps the cure for cancer, the leader of world peace or some other amazing life-changing idea may have been developing among one of the millions and millions of babies that have never been given a shot at life?

What if we were brave enough to look past ourselves and consider what might have been if every little egg and every little sperm, that ever met, were given a chance to change the world?

I can’t help but wonder if the world wouldn’t be a better place if we gave life a chance.

Where have all the world changers gone? Maybe they never had a chance. The potential to change the world is truly our choice to make.
