I just finished reading Little Bee by Chris Cleave for my book club. Without revealing too much of the plot (the book jacket implores the reader to "please don't..tell what happens. The magic is in how it unfolds."), there are many life lessons to learnt, but what most struck me was the idea of people wanting to make the world a better place. It really got me thinking. Now, I'm not a social activist. You won't see me at a protest making a big stink about things. And while I'd love to be a missionary in the field, the reality is that I have a family and a life here, and I'm not going to drag them with me. I'm just not that kind of person. But I do want to make a difference somehow. I thought I might start with what I know.
